Retirement News - April 2019

After a decision, not taken lightly, the time has come for Michael and Peter Cook to announce that they have decided to retire together.

Our family business has been trading in Lowestoft for 107 years and spanned four generations.

Both of us are past retirement age and our children are pursuing their own careers and interests, so this is the way forward for us.

This means that Cooks Furnishers will gradually wind down over the coming weeks, all outstanding orders being fulfilled and later, any remaining stock will be sold off.

The good news is during this time we can still place special orders for customers , so if you have any requirements, please get in touch as soon as possible.

We would like to express our thanks to all the loyal customers and friends made over the years and hope that many of you will call in to see us in Kirkley over the coming weeks.


We can supply furniture and beds from stock with immediate, FREE delivery in either a morning or afternoon time slot - sometimes same day for local addresses. We will deliver anywhere in East Anglia – and further afield – just call us to discuss.

Cooks Furnishers understands that personal and prompt service is of great importance to their customers and will always endeavour to go that extra mile to ensure customers are advised and supplied with the items best suited to their needs.

We are pleased to offer a home selection service for the elderly or housebound - a phone call to our shop for a friendly chat and Cooks will call round at a convenient time with brochures/furniture/advice on all types of furniture.  We are also pleased to call round to advise on awkward access for larger items of furniture.

Our shop in the Kirkley area of South Lowestoft (on London Road South) is an Aladdin's cave of many ranges of traditional and contemporary furniture including shabby chic and vintage style, as well as gifts and home accessories.

Stock items can be supplied immediately by free delivery - even same day for urgent requirements.  Special orders can be placed, on payment of a deposit, and supplied as soon as they come into stock.

We have traded for many years with trusted suppliers and can often track down and supply difficult to find items.  These include mattresses and divan bases in made-to-measure sizes - ideal for mobile homes and boats.

We offer a reliable, FREE delivery service in either a morning or afternoon time-slot.  This can be agreed by phone or at time of purchase.

We can also offer advice on recycling unwanted furniture.
