Beds R Us has 85 stores in Australia and we are expecting growth vs the previous financial year.
On Thursday 16/01/2020 Channel 7’s morning program Sunrise ran a story about Jeanswest going into administration. Towards the end of the story Sunrise pictured Beds R Us among 6 other retailers that are alleged ‘retail casualties’ of 2019, but on Monday 20/01/2020 broadcast an apology for the mistake, which originated at other news sources.
Many of our Beds R Us stores are in regional areas including some in bushfire affected zones and drought-stricken communities. A few of our stores may be doing it tough, but we are a strong group.
