Stollers, also known as Stollers Furniture World, is a British-based home furnishings retailer. It is located at one site, Walney Road, Barrow-in-Furness, North West England, United Kingdom. It is currently one of the largest single site furniture stores in the country.

History[edit]

Stollers was founded in 1905 by Latvian immigrant Issah Stoller, it began as a small market stall in Barrow Market, before a store was established on Barrow's main commercial street, Dalton Road. In the late 1920s, the store moved to larger premises on the same street and began to trade furniture, beds and floor coverings, although linens remained the stores best seller. After Issah's passing in 1944, his son Philip took over the family business, as the Barrow store continued to expand in range of product, two more locations were opened in Millom and Ulverston (now closed). The next generation of the Stoller family decided to move to a much larger location and make the store ready for the 21st century, in 1994 David Stoller purchased land opposite where Barrow's Asda store is currently located. The store was completed in 1995 and became the largest single site furniture retailer in the North West, the store won the NatWest Streamline Independent Retailer of the Year Excellence Award and was finalist in the prestigious UK Furniture Industry Awards "Retailer of the Year". In 2004 a brand new extension was opened which brought the total retail area to 110,000 sq ft (10,000 m2), and ultimately making it one of the largest furniture stores in the United Kingdom.[1]
