Sitting Comfortably In Batley

Batley and Dewsbury Town Crier Laurie Gilbert formally marked the opening and prominent arrival of Shackletons new and larger retail premises at 359 Bradford Road, Batley.

Customers and passers-by were greeted with the sounds of fun as Laurie entertained members of the public with his riddles and rhymes and encouraged those more curious to join in the fun and listen to summer sounds provided by the very talented Byram Street Brass Band.

The new showroom is part of the company’s re-branding and commitment to fifty strong years in Batley and hopes to bring its range of Yorkshire designed and manufactured furniture to a wider audience. With a new range of quality and comfort focused seating Shackletons launched three new collections on the day: The Heritage Collection features timeless classics that can be adapted to individual taste with the wide choice of designer fabrics and wood colour options.The Signature Collection keeps pace with the trends whilst staying true to function and quality – with a choice of bolder designer fabrics to choose from this collection will make a statement in your home. The Motion Studio Collection offers the very latest in motion and reclining technology and provides the perfect balance of comfort and mobility.

All Collections come with the Shackletons 4 point Comfort Guide in mind to make it easy for you to choose your perfect chair; easy to sit, easy to stand, easy to snooze and easy on the eye.

Martyn Higgins, Managing Director at Shackletons says: “We are the same name with the same quality, still a brand you can trust but now in a brand new customer friendly showroom. We are happy to be part of Batley’s retail offering on the Mill Mile and look forward to sharing our design, craftsmanship and comfort with our future customers.”
