The sales chap said this sofa would be easy to clean. After our mud caked dog broke in to the lounge I thought we had a big task ahead. I thought I'd make a start with the Hoover and look what happened! Thanks Julian Foye!

"Brian & Rob, to all concerned. May I take this opportunity to thank all at your store for kindness and help in their help over my choice of bed, no pushing, just good advice on what would be the best type for me. Thanks to all."...J M., Delabole

"I just wanted to write and say how very pleased I was by the service given to me by Mike Rogers. When I phoned with my problem (recliner chair stuck in the reclining position!) he was courteous and helpful and went out of his way to visit me as soon as he possibly could to put the matter right. Someone who is kind, helpful and has a very good way with the customer. Service like this doesn't seem to happen often nowadays - so I thought worth writing to express my appreciation"...Ms H., St Austell

"Thank you Peter for all your help. We have appreciated "Julian Foye's" friendly, efficient and prompt service from all concerned. We are delighted with the result"...Mrs S., Ashburton

"My husband and l would like to express our thanks to the many excellent staff of Julian Foye we have had pleasure in dealing with over the last year. Every one from managers, carpet and curtain fitters, delivery staff etc. has been superb..courteous, helpful, friendly and prepared to go over and above to ensure our satisfaction. We will be recommending your company to all our friends and Julian Foye will continue to be our first port of call for our future furnishing requirements. There is one staff member in particular, Sarah Roberts, who has been amazing since we first encountered her four years ago at Royal Cornwall show. Sarah has helped us through her support in the choice of furniture, carpets, curtains, blinds and a host of other decisions. Nothing has been too much trouble and attention to detail has been paramount. The end result is a refurbished house which is modern, stylish and exactly what we wanted. Without Sarah I doubt we would have had such success and achieved our dream home. We feel privileged to have received such help and are delighted to know that a wonderful family firm such as Julian Foye exists in Cornwall. Many, many thanks"...Mr & Mrs C., Trevone

"To the Managers of St Austell and Truro Julian Foye, we would just like to pass on our sincere thanks to your staff, especially Mike Rogers and Ian Curtis who kindly exchanged our TV stand from your Skovby range. A long story which began over a year ago! Anyway, the issue was resolved between the two stores and we are very grateful for the excellent customer service we received. The new TV stand looks great and now matches the unit we also purchased from the same range... I will let Mike explain what happened! In our quest for living room furniture we have visited three of your stores and we would like to compliment you on your fantastic range and the choice available and excellent service. We will be back, although Ian might hope it is his day off when we visit again! Our sincere thanks and we look forward to you opening a store in Plymouth... Please?"...Mr & Mrs J., Plymouth

"We had our duresta sofa and chair delivered today and are thrilled with our buy.

Thank you to all your staff, a friendly but also knowledgeable and professional local company. We would highly recommend you to our friends and family."...Mr & Mrs R., St Austell

Excellent service, the men arrived early and were polite, pleasant and tidied up after themselves. Many thanks we are delighted."...Mrs H., St Austell

"Dear Peter, I am absolutely over the moon with my bespoke wardrobe. Wonderful to see all my clothes again after over 6 months packed up in the garage. After your guys assembled it, it was great putting everything away, and to find that I have more space in this wonderful cupboard than I really need. How good is that. It fits the room very well, and am very grateful for all the help you gave me."...Ms D., St Austell

"We should like to thank you very much for helping us out last week with a problem we had. Sometime last summer we bought a sofa bed from you in anticipation of a move to a smaller property. We were downsizing and it was for our guest room. When we moved, the removal people told us that the sofa bed was too large to go round the bend in the stairs. Consequently, it was in the middle of the lounge for two weeks!! After wondering what we were going to do with it, which included selling it, or to give it to family, we drove down to your store at St Austell. We were very fortunate to be able to sit down and have a chat with Jon Wilson. What a charming man. He suggested that he arrange for a couple of delivery men to come to the house, and with their vast amount of experience try to get it upstairs. Two very pleasant men came round and within 10 minutes that sofa was in position upstairs!! It was not an easy manoeuvre but they did it. We would like you to know that our faith in human nature has been restored albeit through your staff. Thank you for being understanding and very helpful. You certainly have future customers for life and we will pass the word."...Mr & Mrs B., Lostwithiel

"I would like to thank you so much for your wonderful service. I came into the St. Austell shop on Tuesday afternoon and purchased a rise and recliner chair for my mum who returned home on Monday after a few weeks in hospital following a stroke. She urgently needed a comfy chair that she could get in and out of easily. You kindly delivered the chair the next day on Wednesday. Mum is so pleased with her chair. It suits her perfectly. Thank you!!"...Mrs E., St Austell

"We would just like to let you know, we have just taken delivery of our new sofas and chair, and we are highly delighted with everything. The two gentlemen that delivered it, were brilliant, they removed the old sofas to our garage (my husband has suffered sleepless nights worrying about getting them out there) and did it in no time at all. They even offered to help us put the door back on again, which was much appreciated, although we are now experts at this procedure !!! Once again, many thanks to all of your staff, it was a pleasure to deal with you all"... Mr & Mrs G., Bodmin

"Over the past few years, my wife and I have bought furniture, rugs and last week we had carpet fitted to the whole of our downstairs. The service we received in the store, the delivery and the installation were second to none. Thank you"... Mr & Mrs J., Bodmin

"I just wanted to drop you a line to say how thrilled we are with the sofas we took delivery of yesterday. Beautiful and comfortable; we couldn't be more pleased. I also wanted to provide feedback for the delivery staff who were professional and patient trying to get the enormous sofa in the house. Suggesting alternative solutions, it was clear that they were not going to leave me in the lurch, and even waited while I arranged for someone to come and take the window out. So relieved we got it in before the rain came! Thanks again to all at Julian Foye"... Mrs H., St Austell

"We refer to the carpet we had laid. We wanted to say a big "thank you" to Darren and Alan, his apprentice for a super job done with obvious expertise, humour and helpfulness. It turned an upheaval into an experience which was both enjoyable and very satisfying. They went the extra mile by moving beds in and out which was a relief and really invaluable"...  Mr & Mrs K., St Kew.

"Hello, Whenever I zip through Hayle it always seems to be out of hours at the mo and I've been meaning to pop by to say thankyou. So instead I thought I'd drop a quick line just to show my appreciation. First, thanks so much Tony. Most sales staff have me running for the hills but you were so patient, approachable and helpful, lord knows it took us a while to decide what to order to keep everyone happy. We also really appreciated that you kept us well informed and coordinated delivery beautifully. Plus I'd like to also thank the lovely delivery staff who were all so prompt, polite thoughtful and friendly it made the whole process seamless. I'd really appreciate that this be forwarded to the appropriate staff members. We are delighted with the new mattress and ROM swivel chairs, all fantastic quality. Thanks again"... Mrs S., Sennen

Thank you"... Mr & Mrs C., Hayle

"Last Monday we had a fruitful and refreshing time at your Wadebridge branch. I am not sure what classification we fall into, whether we are Crumblies or Wrinklies, but we felt that our ten year old armchairs were not providing the support and comfort we needed these days. We have shopped with you before and had heard about stressless chairs so we decided to call in and see what was what. The greeting we received from Teresa was gentle and genuine. We said that we were looking for new  armchairs and were considering stressless chairs. Without any pressure whatsoever, she showed us the range and asked what we needed, she suggested we try all the styles on show and also feel the difference the size of a chair made. She demonstrated the way they worked and left us to try and stay awake in the comfort of those wonderful chairs. Our plan had been to suss out the value of upgrading to these expensive chairs, followed by a discussion about which style, colour and size in a coffee bar before deciding on a particular one. We also had a budget which we thought was reasonable. Well, Teresa was a real treasure, her product knowledge, her easy going but structured technique were excellent. We just felt confident enough to blow the budget and buy the best chairs we could! We left the store as happy folk pleased with the purchase, this is truly a credit to her and reflects strongly on you as a group for your choice of staff. I have been in touch with Jon from St. Austell and the delay in writing this has been because I could not find out where to send this e-mail, Jon is also a credit to your company for the way he promptly replied to my query e-mails. These days it is so unusual to find quality staff who actually know what they are selling and how to sell it well. Thank you Teresa and thank you Julian Foye, a remarkable team.  Our best wishes"... Mr & Mrs M., Padstow

"Mr Wilson, A big thank you for the safe delivery of my furniture. Your delivery boys were so helpful and kind.

The mattress was delivered by two polite and helpful men at the time Mr Phelan said. I must say the service we have had was great, and to say thank you once again"... Mr & Mrs P.

"Thank you for every aspect of your salesmanship and customer care.

However, I was even more impressed with the service, assistance and advice I received from Mike. I left the store and travelled on to your store in Truro where I was again delighted to see such a good selection and receive pleasant attention and help from Peter. During the following two weeks I visited several other stores in the area, but last week as expected, I found myself back at your St Austell store where again I was greeted with help, advice and patience in choosing which items to purchase.
