W & T Nettleton is situated in the thriving village of Horbury in West Yorkshire. Trading from the same site for 100 years, the family run store has built a reputation renowned for providing furniture of the highest quality and housing many of the leading brands.
This year is a very special year for Nettletons, celebrating 100 years since the store first opened. The store has a long standing history in the area and is proud to be celebrating its centenary and still going strong.
A family business
The store was established in 1919 by brothers Walter and Tom Nettleton. After serving in the First World War, the brothers returned home and decided to set up in business, selling furniture to the local people. The brothers started making and selling individual suites, delivering them to the local people by hand cart and then later using a horse and cart.
Expanding & the future
By 1958 W & T Nettleton had also acquired the old former chapel across the road. The business continued to grow as they manufactured and re-covered suites, French polished furniture, employed apprentices and built made to measure wardrobes. By 1980 the store had 40 staff and a sewing department making curtains, loose covers and seamed carpets.
The old chapel now houses a large bed and bedroom studio, whilst the original premises are where you can browse for living and dining suites. W & T Nettleton has developed into the finest furniture store in the area, with a friendly personal service they continue to offer beautiful furniture from their spacious showrooms at great prices.
