Metro Group

The Metro Group is an organisation with over 200 retail outlets throughout Great Britain and Northern Ireland with combined retail sales in excess of 80 million. Each member of the group is an independent retailer who owns the business entirely. The main benefit to you, the consumer, is the fact that each retailer has a genuine interest in your total satisfaction. Unlike major 'faceless' organisations, on a lot of occasions you will deal with the company owner or immediate staff, who will have a number of years experience in the flooring industry who can offer unbiased advice on the correct types of flooring, plus, as part of the 80 million Metro Group, you can rest assured that the price you pay will be very competitive. Our Carpet 1st label offers exclusive ranges chosen by our experienced selection committee on the basis of quality, performance and value for money.
