National retailer Furniture Village has retained its bed retailer of the year crown, with Newbridge Street Bedding Centre winning the independent category.

The awards — now in their fifth year — also saw Mattress Online take top spot in the Bed Etailer category and were presented at the NBF Gala Dinner at the Telford International Centre last night.

Furniture Village was named top multiple for a second consecutive year, beating specialist retailer Bensons for Beds, which was highly commended.

Cheshire retailer Land of Beds was highly commended in the independent retailer of the year category but judges voted Newbridge Street Bedding Centre in the North East the winner.
