Advantages big choice
Disadvantages no online shopping
Hello dear reader,I was just scrolling through the new products and found the Dunelm Mill. First I have to confess two things. First I was never quite sure how to pronounce that name. I guess being german didn't help so I always ended up calling it the "dunno mill". And second. I loved that shop.
My experience will be based upon the Dunelm Mill shop in Coventry, Midlands.Dunelm Mill is mainly found in the Midlands. But they do have over 75 stores nationwide. There is one in Northern Ireland, three in Scotland, three in Wales and the rest is spread through England.
Most of those stores provide free parking, and some also offer a coffee shop and late night as well as Sunday opening.
The Coventry store did not have a coffee shop so I won't be able to comment on that.
STORYDunelm Mill was founded about 20 years ago in Leicester by Bill and Jean Adderley. They started of with small high street shops and have by now mainly superstores in out of town locations. The company's motto is "Simply Value for Money". The headquarter is still in Leicester. Since 1996 Will Adderley took over his father's company
