One of the greatest symbols of upmarket wales is to close down
Retailers Maskreys which has furnished and decorated many of the nations most affluent homes, will close its doors for the final time in November.
The company, run by one of the best-known retail families in Wales, is to stop trading because its 70-year old chairman Robert Maskrey cannot find a successor to take control of its brancdhes in Cardiff, Newport and bristol.
Maskreys has traded its way through two,world wars, several recessions and a great Depression-
but now, one of Wales last high street family firms is closing its doors for the final time.
Remaining with maskreys for 15 years gaining invaluable experience working with high end furniture and perfecting his french polishing and Wood repair skills.
Eventually becoming maskreys polishing shop foreman, responsible for the day to day running of maskreys polishing shop, ensuring and maintaining the constant quality control.
This has resulted in a lack of highly trained workers and means most companies employ less experienced workers at lower wages to compete,
Who would you rather have to restore your wood floors? A builder? A decorator?
Or a trained antique restorer with over 30 years experience?
Unfortunately a lot of people have experienced problems with dishonest or unskilled workers who promise more than they can deliver either purposefully or through over confidence.
When people see the quality service we provide they are frequently very pleasantly surprised.
A word of caution this is your flooring and you shouldn't just choose a company because they are the cheapest.
Maskreys was established in 1898 by John Maskrey.
