Our social media cover star: Gillian at Bound 2 Fit

Durham’s Bound 2 Fit sells a wide range of flooring, and has an on-site binding machine for creating runners, mats or rugs in specific sizes.

For our latest cover star we’re staying in Durham Market Hall and meeting a business owner who has been trading there for 12 years – Gillian at Bound 2 Fit!

Gillian and co-owner Frank both have over 30 years’ experience in the flooring business, and it shows in the quality of service and product knowledge that you get when you visit.

Bound 2 Fit is a stockist for Lifestyle Floors, a well-known specialist in many types of quality but great-value flooring – including carpets, vinyl, laminate and wood – whose products are sold through a national network of independent flooring retailers. Bound 2 Fit can provide you with a free estimate, and offer an expert fitting service across the local area.

If what you need is a rug rather than an entire floor, Bound 2 Fit is also the place to go! Gillian has one of the North’s only carpet binding machines on site, which she can use to make runners, mats or rugs in specific sizes, or even irregular shapes. This flexibility is why Bound 2 Fit has become so popular among caravan and motorhome owners, with the ability to create you a mat that will fit in any awkward space!

When you step inside Durham Market Hall, there is a sign that says “More than just a market – Durham’s independent department store”, and it really is true. With more than 40 independent businesses inside – many, like Gillian, offering products or services that you can’t get anywhere else locally – Durham Market Hall truly is a shopping destination of which our city can be proud.
