Our Family Business

Jill Burton

On 25th March 2009 Jill took over Ron's Furnishers...

In 1998 Lee, Jill's husband started working at Ron's Furnishers as Driver's Mate. After several months of Lee working for Ron he asked if Jill would be interested in helping with paper work for a few hours a week. Jill helped Ron with paper work over a number of years.

In 2006, Ron offered Jill the opportunity of a Part-time position in selling, Jill was not confident to sell and informed Ron that she couldn't sell as she had no experience in selling, it so happened Jill was in the shop Ron was on his own and there were a few customers, Jill asked if a customer needed help, they replied they would like to purchase a bed, Jill went to inform Ron that they wished to buy. Ron handed Jill the order book, so off Jill went and completed the order. The customer was really pleased with the way she was dealt with. Jill was on a high that she had made her first sale and felt very proud of herself that was the decider for her. She started working for Ron. Ron gave Jill training in all aspects of the job, ensuring she was confident in the work she was doing.

In 2008 Ron announced that he would be retiring in 2009, and that a new owner would be taking over, but as time got closer to Ron retiring the proposed new owner decided it was not for him. Ron then commented to Jill you could run this business, to which she replied yes I could. That was it, Ron set everything in motion, by introducing Jill to the suppliers.

Rons Team

On 25th March 2009 Jill took over Ron's Furnishers, Ron offered his help for 12 months to oversee the changeover. In 2011 a vacancy arose Rachael, Jill's daughter joined the selling team, working alongside her Mom. Rachael was trained up in Measuring and Estimating Carpets. Rachael has since had training on fitting carpets, by our long serving carpet fitter John.

In 2013 Alexandra (Jill's younger daughter joined the team) after completing a 3 year Mechanics course at college. Alex works alongside her Dad Lee, as drivers mate delivering the Beds, Mattresses & Recliner Chairs.

Ron's is a family run business who takes pride in serving the people of Wolverhampton.

  • On visiting Ron's Furnishers I was pleasantly surprised to find that Bed's were available in many different sizes, I required a double size divan set, but knowing the base would not go up the stairs in to the loft, I was informed that the base could be supplied in quarters and secured together once in the loft. I was amazed that this was possible. Thank you Ron's Furnishers for this information. Will certainly recommend.
