What sets Bensons for Beds apart from its competitors in terms of its overall business and its Affiliate programme?
Bensons for Beds is Britain's favourite bed specialist - a company with over 50 years heritage, dedicated to ensuring our customers get a great night’s sleep. Originally founded as a general store in 1950 by Cyril Benson, our first bed centre concept opened in 1972. In 2011, the new Bensons for Beds business was launched, merging the existing Bensons for Beds, Sleepmasters and Bed Shed brands under one umbrella. Bensons for Beds now has over 270 stores nationwide.
When you buy a bed from Bensons for Beds you can be sure of expert help and advice, backed up by comprehensive customer service and after sales service.
Following extensive customer research, the Comfort Station was developed which has now been introduced in to every store. The Comfort Station helps you choose the comfort that is right for you. Beds are rated 1 to 5 in terms of firmness, with 5 being the most firm.
Our retail stores are supported by a head office of experienced marketing, buying and logistics teams, ensuring that we are giving you the best service. A centralised customer service function is also based in the UK head office, ensuring that customers’ queries are dealt with quickly and efficiently. Today, Bensons operates predominantly as concessions on many large retails parks and we now have a growing number of stand alone bed superstores and a selection of high street stores. We also have a new improved fully transactional website.
