Independent, family-owned retailer Queenstreet Carpets & Furnishings, which has operated in Exeter for nearly 50 years, has unveiled the name ‘CASA’ on their second new retail shop in Topsham, to open on 1st May.

Brothers, Gary & Mark Dixie signed the lease last month on ‘The Old Gaol’, a listed building located opposite Topsham’s quay area, formerly known as ‘Brights of Nettlebed’. Since that time they have carried out refurbishments and erected the new signage ready for the opening in May.

The second new store will showcase the company’s range of furniture, upholstery, beds and giftware, which will include affordable pieces as well as more luxurious brands.

Gary Dixie, Co-director said: “We wanted to give the new outlet an individual name to separate it from our existing Queenstreet Carpets & Furnishings shop to avoid confusion and to suit the local market. We will not be selling carpets at ‘CASA’, however customers can still visit our spacious 10,000 sq.ft. carpet and furnishings store at Alphington, which has an extensive range of flooring by all the leading brands.”
