About Us

Ideally people go into business when there is an opportunity – when there is a market for a product and not a great supply to satisfy that market. I have always been conscious of the fact that Inverness and the Highlands had lots of great shops, particularly when it comes to the furniture sector which is where my retail experience has been earned. But the bed market was another thing. Furniture shops tend to sell a few beds in a small section of their shop, and the bed shops in Inverness are parts of national chains which we all know don’t offer the best value. Surely there was an opportunity to open a specialist bed and mattress shop servicing Inverness and the Highlands and to offer a better range of products, certainly at better prices, and to keep stock for quick delivery? We hoped so, and it has proved to be the case. Beds and mattresses are a pretty technical product and are well suited to a specialist store, and we are always learning about new spring systems, luxurious sleeping surfaces and temperature managing fabrics – and we just love it. As we learn we find better and better products. As the business develops we can secure more advantageous buying terms with factories. As our customers tell us what they like we can stock beds and mattresses which the local people of the Highlands appreciate and want to have. It’s been a great experience opening and trading Black Isle Beds and we will continue to work to create the best bed deals in Inverness. We will continue to support local business and local charities as a “Thank You” for the support that the local people have shown us.
