An introduction to Leightons

Founded in 1934 by Sid Leighton, trading as General Stores and Pawnbroker. In 1949, Mr Fred Booker, father of the current owners and nephew of Sid joined the firm and gradually introduced carpets and flooring to the range whilst expanding the store into neighbouring properties. The sixties and seventies saw huge growth with the advent of wall to wall fitted carpet reaching huge popularity and the patterned Axminster style, offering quality and durability, going from strength to strength.

Over the coming years, Leightons became known as ‘Number One’ for flooring, with huge stocks of the leading brands at best possible prices.

In the seventies, Fred’s two sons, Neal and Chris, joined the family firm, learning the trade from the grass roots, completing their apprenticeship fitting all forms of flooring. In the late eighties, Suzanne, Fred’s daughter, joined and has been instrumental in establishing the region’s premier soft furnishing departments. This encompasses fabrics from across the globe, showing all major brand samples at the Hessle Road store.

Specialising in bespoke curtains and blinds, the service starts with the highly experienced team helping with styling and selection. Our workrooms produce to the highest standards and our fitters give the final, finished look in your home.

The noughties has seen major expansion for Leightons, incorporating beds and mattresses from the industry’s leading brands such as Sleepeeze, Harrison and Milbrook, alongside a bespoke collection made by the Yorkshire Bed Company, meaning any height, length or width can be achieved. In 2014, the showroom in Beverley opened with over eighty different beds & mattresses to try and many ranges of flooring & bedroom furniture to choose from.

By 2018, the growth continued with the opening of the Discount Carpets & Beds store on Hessle Road, which has literally hundreds of carpet remnants and range ends at greatly discounted prices.

The Directors, Neal, Chris and Suzanne, and all the team at Leightons are happy to meet with you and discuss any requirements for your perfect home- we look forward to seeing you soon!
