DECEMBER 2021 - DANIEL
Daniel picked up this amazing draftsman table for his partner as a surprise XMAS present.
She fell in love with it when she was in the shop and top bloke Daniel sneaked back into Robs and purchased it and then we held it for him for a few months when he was away at sea and then he turns up with boxes of beer for us (thanks Daniel we do a lot of stuff for a lot of people and that was a really nice gesture that we appreciated).
And so being an all-around good guy and a total gentleman, Daniel is our very well-deserved customer of the month for December. Happy XMAS Daniel - enjoy the bubbles and let us know how the 'surprise' xmas present goes down? 😊 Ta Rob

And so we made Victoria our customer for June and wish her all the best in her future career. You’ll be great Victoria!

They both love their new bed and it is with great pleasure, Robs Furniture Warehouse makes Joy and Neville our February customer of the month.

a replacement. Both Ann and Adrian have demanding jobs so a good night’s sleep was essential to them and they ended up buying a MAZON high-density memory foam mattress (we love these and Rob and some of his team sleep on these amazing mattresses).

you’ll really enjoy sleeping on your new mattress.
APRIL 2021 - THE PARKS
The Parks really needed a good night’s sleep (young family and
both working hard and sleeping on a mattress that just wasn’t doing it for them!). This great couple were SO NICE to deal with and they spent some time trying several beds as they both had individual needs – so great they did a lot of testing and ended up with a pocket spring and memory foam mattress – which I think is a perfect fit and sale price too. It was lovely to see a couple enjoying a rare day off from the kids and embracing the day and each other’s company and having fun. A real pleasure to serve. Enjoy the
champers in your barn conversion guys – sounds amazing.
