A QUALITY furniture company in Nailsea is celebrating its 50th birthday this year.
Orchards The Furniture People, in Somerset Square, is an independent family-run business which prides itself on its excellent customer service.
Orchards was originally established in Portishead High Street in 1965 by John Orchard.
In 1985 the business opened a new store in Nailsea town centre and the shop is now thriving under John’s son Robin, with the support of his widely experienced staff.
Robin said: “We have fantastic customer support from local residents as well as those from further afield. We are often delivering all over the country and have also sent items overseas.

“It’s nice to know our selection of furniture has such a wide appeal to so many and we have items to suit all styles, ages and budgets.
“We have a great website which covers a good range enabling us to virtually extend our show room, however, we concentrate on the personal touch as this is so important when choosing furniture. You really do need to try, see and explore the choices.
