Family-run Cookstown Furniture Centre (CFC) is celebrating an impressive 40 years in business this month.

CFC Interiors, which also has stores in Campsie and Newtownards, is one of Northern Ireland’s longest established independent interiors businesses.

Founded in 1976 by Norman Wilson, it now employs 60 staff across its three stores.

CFC Interiors prides itself on its reputation for excellence, showcasing some of the best in contemporary designer furniture.

Today, the business is run by Norman and son Paul, with his other son Stephen running sister company, Killymoon Living.

To mark this significant milestone, the family is welcoming thousands of customers to their biggest ever interiors event, Furniture Show NI, which will run until October 22.

As well as offering significant savings on all stock, the award-winning business will top off celebrations with the Ireland launch of Silentnight’s limited edition 70th anniversary collection.

Paul Wilson, CFC Interiors said: “To be chosen by the UK’s biggest bed manufacturer to launch their latest product is fantastic and a clear sign of the strong reputation we’ve carved out for ourselves in the interiors world.

“Reaching 40 years in business is no mean feat and I am delighted that as a family we have been able to keep the business going from strength-to-strength.

“We are fortunate to have a talented team of people who are like family to us and ensure we deliver the best service to our customers.”

Furniture Show NI has amazing reductions and offers on all stock across the company’s three stores.

Last year customers saved more than £750,000 and the owners are promising even more savings.

“As our way of saying thanks to our loyal customers we will be offering the biggest reductions on the widest range of new season stock,” added Paul.
