Greendale Carpets & Floorings Ltd

Greendale is the biggest Independent Buying Group in the UK. From the early days of its conception in 1962 we have progressed from what was an exclusive "club" to a nationwide association of over 160 independent retail carpet and floorcovering specialists. By coming together in this way, our members now enjoy a purchasing power just as great or greater than that of the big "out of town" multiples. What this means is that Greendale offers you, the customer, not only the exceptionally high levels of personal service you expect from an independent retailer, but also extremely competitive prices on our own exclusive Greendale branded carpets as well as those of all the leading British and overseas manufacturers. In addition, we also provide access to suppliers of wood floors, naturals, vinyls and, of course, rugs. In visiting your Greendale Retailer you can buy your floorcovering with the confidence of knowing that you have the very best quality, choice, service and value for money.
