Richbrook Furniture Bessbrook

A south Armagh furniture business is offering competitive prices and deals that you will want to get your hands on.

Back in June, Richbrook Furniture, an already well-established family run business on Bessbrook’s Mill Road, was passed on to another family.

The new owner, a native of the model village, will be a name which is known to many.

Mark Weir is one of the men behind the highly successful R Kings Competitions and he has now taken on this new venture.

Speaking to¬†Armagh I, Mark’s mother¬†Lorna explained that this really is a full circle moment for her son.

“Mark used to work for the previous owner and now he owns it,” she explained. “We live in Bessbrook. It was owned by a local family but now it has remained a family business, just owned by another family.

Lorna, along with Martina, an employee of the former owner, have been working hard to revamp the business and putting their own stamp on things.

The store is stocked with everything for the interior design of your home; from sofas to beds and mirrors to tables, you are bound to find what you are looking for.

“We have also been doing a lot of deals and special offers. We have done beds with the mattress and duvet thrown in and a sofa with a TV as well,” said Lorna.

“I think that is a bit of Mark rubbing off on the business but people always like having something for free and it does seem to be working.”

There is also a seasonal corner of the store, which is currently stocked for all your gardening needs, but will soon be all set up for us heading towards Christmas.

Added Lorna: “We are based on the Mill Road. A lot of people don’t even know we are here but there is ample parking and we really have everything you could need and if we don’t we will try our best to get it for you.”
