About Us

In December 1981, John & Sandra Pickering began their Career & opened the first store in Queens Road, Hastings.

Since then, the company has expanded and currently operates from 13 branches across Sussex & Kent. Each store differing in character but all offering the same great products & services.

John & Sandra are immensely proud of the good reputation Sussex Beds™ has earned over the years. A reputation built on sound principles of providing great products at low prices and also caring customer service.

Sussex Beds™ is a true independent family business. This is immediately obvious with its warm welcome & relaxed shopping experience. Many of the staff you meet, from the showroom to delivery team are directly related to John & Sandra. All are on hand to help & guide you in finding products, which meet both needs & budgets.

Each product proudly displays the Sussex Beds™ Brand. This is your guarantee the product has been carefully selected & tested. We do this to ensure it meets the Sussex Beds™ standards of quality & value.
