A FAMILY-RUN TV, appliance and kitchen company whose clients include Kensington Palace and 10 Downing Street has chosen Rotherham for its new 45,000 sq ft superstore.

Crampton and Moore – one of Sheffield’s longest-established family businesses – enters a new era next month with the launch of the new showroom, warehouse and distribution hub at Waverley.

Founded in 1966 by partners John Moore and Roy Crampton, the company was first based in an old Methodist church in Wincobank, before shops opened in Rotherham and then Sheffield’s Ecclesfield and Firth Park districts.

Crampton and Moore is now well-established across the north, with stores in Leeds and Harrogate, and the business works with major brands including Hotpoint, Hoover, Dyson, Samsung, Bosch, Panasonic, and, Sony.

A strong online presence has also helped Crampton and Moore to develop an annual turnover of £32 million.

The November launch of the new superstore at Poplar Way in Waverley – relocating from the company’s surviving Ecclesfield shop – will feature the latest kitchen design displays, connected smart appliances, designer ranges, eco-friendly models and the latest in TV and home cinema experiences.

Managing director Robert Moore, son of founder John Moore, said: “Even though so much of our business is now conducted online through our hugely popular website, we do appreciate that many people still prefer to look before they buy and also talk to experienced salespeople who can give them expert advice.

“We are still a 100 per cent family-run independent business but our track record has made us a national retail leader and now we have the premises to match that reputation.

“Our customers can choose to browse online, use click and collect or visit the showroom for expert advice – whatever is convenient.”

He added: “The location of our new showroom is just minutes from Junction 33 of the M1, so we are in easy reach of clients from South and West Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and beyond.

“Family and customer service remains at the heart of everything we do but, after more than half a century, we feel we have finally got the store that represents the successful national company we truly are.”
