A BED shop owner will be sleeping a little more easily at night after his efforts were recognised at an industry awards' night.
Jerry Cheshire, owner of Surrey Beds, in Purley, won the Independent Retailer of the Year prize at the annual National Bed Federation (NBF) Bed Show.
Over the past year Jerry, who calls himself The Beducator, has been focusing on the branding of the store, including development of his own YouTube channel.
Surrey Beds also overcame adversity and still delivered a growth in sales year-on-year, despite roadworks right outside their premises on the corner of Old Lodge Lane and Brighton Road costing them an estimated £300,000 in summer 2013.
The store, which opened 13 years ago, also celebrated its 25,000th sale in April.
Mr Cheshire said: "I have attended the NBF Bed Show for many years, however this is the first time I have ever entered the awards. "I am over the moon to have been recognised by such influential industry experts and very proud to put Croydon on the map at the national show."
