Sofa shop closes after two years of trading in town centre


An interiors showroom has closed two years after opening at St Anns Parade.

Sitting Duck Sofas opened in the summer of 2016 in the premises previously occupied by Acacia Health Foods, following a complete refit.

They sold bespoke sofas crafted by carpenters, seamstresses and upholsterers along with a range of accessories including rugs, cushions candles and lamps.

The company was founded seven years ago but until two years ago had been a purely online operation.
