Time To Lay All Our Carpets on the Table: The Story of runrug®
Where it all began
runrug® as we know it was founded in 2011, but our family’s expertise runs back decades. In fact, you could say that quality carpet is woven into every fibre of our being. Born and bred in the hardworking port town of Grimsby, UK, our family continues to build upon the expertise and polished customer service skills set out by the generations before us.
The modern-day runrug® is run by us, the Shaw brothers. After years of building up a wealth of experience at our father’s carpet shop in Grimsby town we decided to make it our own, taking the business further than it had ever been before.
Now with over 70 years experience in the flooring trade, our knowledge in this industry is second to none.
Shall we get acquainted?
‘Who are the Shaw brothers?’, we hear you ask. Well, rather than tell you all about ourselves, we can actually show you. Here we are in action:
What we do
runrug® are the largest stockist of carpet runners, stair runners and stair rods in the world. We offer a huge range of custom-made carpet runners in any length up to a whopping 100 ft (30 metres) long. Every single runner style showcased on our web site is stocked right here in our warehouse, which enables us to provide a fast delivery service within days of you placing an order. We’re nifty like that.
And, as the third generation of this incredible family company, we’ve taken advantage of the many glorious technological advances to help keep our overheads low, which means we can pass on some seriously huge discounts to our customers. We source our stock direct from manufacturers around the world, deliberately missing out the wholesaler to ensure our prices stay nice and low.
Let’s talk carpets …
Got some questions? Need some advice? Our dedicated team of sales advisers are always on hand to answer any questions you might have. They know their stuff and they are here to help you find the perfect carpet runner or flooring solution for your specific needs.
Another crucial part of their task is to keep an eye on the latest trends and innovations in the industry, which allows runrug® to be extra proactive in developing our offerings to include all the latest styles and designs.
