Boss of Haverhill store glad to be back trading after long lay-off




The boss of a family-owned home furnishings store that reopened in Haverhill on Saturday spoke of his pleasure at seeing customers coming over the threshold again after a 10-week closure.

Glasswells, in High Street, welcomed customers through its doors for the first time since late March because of the coronavirus lockdown.

Managing director Paul Glasswell said: “It was nice to get trade on again after a long ten weeks.

“We were pleased with the number of people at Bury (which also reopened on Saturday) and Haverhill and the people that came in did have a reason.

“They needed and wanted something and I think that’s what came through.

“At no stage were we overrun or had a problem with social distancing but what we did have was people who had been sitting at home who were thinking they needed a new carpet or bed and they came in with that purpose.”
