Information on Electrical Goods and Kitchen Appliances at our Southwick Store

Carters is a independent domestic appliance retailer based in Sussex. We have six stores all stocked with kichen appliances that will look great in your home. Whilst the largest store is the one found in Preston Road, Brighton just a few yards north of Preston Circus, our Southwick Store established in 1994 has become part of the local community and a destination store amongst many different businesses in Southwick Square. Our range of all goods for sale at these local areas include items such as washing machines, tumble dryers, dishwashers, vacuum cleaners, microwaves, electric fires, cookers, range cookers, kitchen hobs and all kinds of refrigeration. The Southwick premises totals almost 2,000 sq ft and keeps a large volume of stock in its stockroom from spares and batteries to large appliances for an immediate pick up or delivery by one of our delivery vans. It is run by Ronnie who has worked for us since 1997 and previously for Seeboard for many years

Southwick has grown rapidly in the 20th century as the coast became a popular holiday destination.

A first century AD Roman villa lies under Manor Hall Road. Records tell us that it was a elaborately decorated lavish residence similar in design to Fishbourne Roman Palace. that can be found near Chichester a few miles to the west. The site was acquired by the Sussex Archaeological Trust in 1931 and part of the villa was opened to the viewing public during summer months. In 1953-4 however, the site was sold to a property developer. The site now lies below housing. There are corresponding road names in the area, such as Roman Road and Roman Crescent.

Kings Cottages on Southwick Green is reputed to be where King Charles II stayed overnight before escaping to France from the nearby fishing village of Brighthelmstone (now Brighton).

Wing Commander Ken Wallis, the leading exponent of autogyros, lived in Church Lane, Southwick. Wallis worked as Sean Connery's stunt pilot in the 1967 James Bond film You Only Live Twice, where he flew one of his WA-116s named Little Nellie. In 1970, Wallis provided camera footage from one of his autogyros in a search for the Loch Ness Monster

Some of the questions asked by customers are as follows:

Where do I find your store?

Our store is part of the Southwick Square shopping complex constructed in the early 1960s and is well known to local residents. It is just east of the large Green Park area that attracts Funfairs and fetes in the summer months.The main roads to use would be the main A27 running a half a mile north of the store and the coast road that can be taken to Brighton if travelling east and to Shoreham/Worthing if heading west. There is also a train station linked to Brighton just south of the Square. A number of buses pass by including No46 that vistis Churchill Square and Hollingbury. Any Brighton/Worthing taxi cab will know our store here. Just ask to be taken to the Carters store, Southwick.

Does Carters deliver free to Southwick and the surrounding area?

Yes we do ! We deliver all items at no charge to any BN or RH postcode which is a large area so all addresses around Southwick will not be charged as long as the total invoice whether one item or more comes to over £150 with us. Remember that we are able to deliver any item to any mainland UK address at a competitive fee.

Is all stock kept at your Southwick shop?

No!. As we offer such a large range of goods to our customers it has become necessary to store most items in a large 40,000sq ft warehouse. Our Southwick store therefore keeps a good core range of everyday items in stock but most large appliances will be sourced from our Storrington storage facility. Southwick customers can be assured of the very best fast delivery service to their homes. Give us a try!

Please tell me if your delivery team install and take away the old appliance?

We have seven delivery crews including three that will deliver your appliance to any Southwick address or home in nearby Brighton or Shoreham. The delivery crew are well trained and able to install most freestanding machines from washing machines to dishwashers, fridges and cookers. Please ask about our service for built in appliances as this can be arranged but on a job to job basis. We do charge to install and to take way the old appliance for recycling but at a very reasonable sometimes subsidised rate. Ask us for details. For your information all goods collected are taken to approved disposal facilities. Carters are keen to help our environment!

I am concerned that your price you've charged may be higher than other places in Southwick and the surrounding area such as Brighton, Steyning or Worthing. Do you match prices from other stores?

Yes we operate an extremely competitive price match policy. We constantly look at our prices and try to offer our customers the lowest prices anywhere on the Sussex High Street. We believe our prices are very low but will attempt to match any High Street Store in Sussex on the day of sale, like for like including delivery, on every single item we sell. We have pride in being loyal to our customers as they are to us The product must in stock at the competitors store and be a current model capable of being purchased by ourselves from our normal sources. The only possible exceptions is when the appliance is an ex demonstration or discontinued model. We must be given sufficient information to enable us to check the price at the competitors store. In any situation however we will always try our best to give the very best price even in a non like for like basis.
