It is refreshing to see some positive news on successful trading in Ireland when there is so much doom and gloom around! One company that looks to be bucking the trend is Cost Plus Sofas, which now have 18 megastores Ireland-wide from Dublin to Cork and from Sligo to Waterford, with one in Kilkenny just opened. A further new store (number 19 ) is opening in Castlebar in March 2011 and another couple of stores are scheduled to open later in the year. Every new store provides new job opportunities to the local community.
Cost Plus offer designer sofas at discount prices at levels well below what one would expect, so customers are talking to each other and are reporting that their prices are generally 30 to 50 per cent lower than anywhere else. As a result Cost Plus is growing strongly as a company and they have already become Ireland’s number one sofa retailer. In these challenging times, they believe that only those companies offering exceptional value to their customers will survive.
The next big step forward for the Cost Plus Group (as well as continuing to develop and further improve their sofa offer with exciting new products and package deals ) is to become the clear market leader in beds too. Their sister company, Beds Etc, has taken large areas in every Cost Plus Sofas megastore and the aim is to be 50 per cent cheaper than any competitor on all their beds on offer (for instance a luxurious memory foam divan set for only €399, when similar high specification beds are on sale elsewhere for over €1,000 ) and to provide immediate delivery from stock on all top sellers! Major international and Irish brands are included in their wide range of bedding products, including single and double divan sets, bedsteads, mattresses, bunk beds, headboards, pillows, etc.
Pop into any Cost Plus Sofas store and you will receive a warm friendly welcome, a cup of coffee, and the chance to look around with no obligation to purchase. They say seeing is believing so what are you waiting for?
