PRAMSHOPS DERBY - STEP INTO A DIFFERENT WORLD
So why are we different?
We sell in-store at internet prices, or even less in our cash and carry department, for the reason that we prefer customers to see what they are buying. This is backed up by a full after-sales service.
‘THORPES’ is a family run business, and in 2011 we were 125 years old, so we like to think we must be doing something right. We can compete on price, as we don’t have any director’s fees, or pay any rent, and our overheads are spread across several departments – which is another reason that we are different.
With large toy and furniture departments, we like to think we can interest the whole family. In the toy department we stock an amazing range of dolls’ houses, whilst in the furniture department we have a variety of items which would be suitable for the nursery – for example bunk beds and seventeen ranges of bedroom furniture to name but a few.
Oh! And did we mention that you can park at the door!
