D & C Reynolds Limited was formed in 1972. From small beginnings when the company had few contacts, both the wholesale trade business formed by David and the retail arm formed by wife Carol prospered.
We had few contacts in those early years but by working seven days a week both aspects of our business progressed at a phenomenal pace throughout the seventies, eighties and nineties.
In 1981 we built a new warehouse of 12,000 sq ft ending the need for the rental facility we had at one of Kidderminster’s oldest carpet factories. In 1992 we extended our flagship retail store in the town, creating additional retail space with six apartments above. At this point our staff levels exceeded seventy people and we always felt that no one worked for us; they all worked with us which is still the case today.
Throughout these years and up to today we have attracted many customers, naturally from the UK and Ireland but also from many parts of Europe and West and South Africa. We can confidently say that the relationships we have formed with customers over many years has built lasting friendships. We believe this is testimony to all concerned of our efforts to give high level of service to our clients.
From day one our trade side has only dealt in clearance stocks from the UK and European markets. The benefits of which are simple. Unlike regular wholesalers who continually repeat lines, our stocks are ever changing and cannot be repeated. This gives our customers piece of mind that they are not trying to compete with too many other traders with the same stock.
All customers are welcome to visit our warehouse where we have incorporated a sample room facility; we can also deal with customers online or by telephone.
Today’s trade team consists of David, Carol and son Andrew ably supported by senior sales rep Paul and Steve who is also Accounts manager.
