It all started over 60 years ago when my dad, Alan Hall, started as an apprentice carpet fitter at Binns’ store in Fawcett Street in Sunderland, and then for Joplings as a qualified carpet fitter. After working there for over ten years he started his own carpet fitting business and took me on as an apprentice carpet fitter. In the early 80s we opened Norfolk Street Carpets, Alan Hall the salesman and me, the carpet fitter.
In the early 90s Alan decided to retire but I remained in the carpet business and opened Southwick Carpets and a few years later with my two brothers opened Pallion Carpets. Now my brothers have moved on and myself and my family own Southwick Carpets and Pallion Carpets. With my mam Bridget also working for Binns as a carpet sewer, I was born into carpets.
