About Us


Flooring the competition for decades!

Owner Mark Regan has over 40 years’ experience in the flooring industry and the history of The Carpet Shop extends back just over 70 years.

The Carpet Shop at the Mews | SouthportThe Carpet Shop was first opened by Frank Dalton (right) in 1946, who called it Northern Flooring. Geoff Regan (middle), Mark Regan (the current owner’s dad), joined the company in 1969, with Keith Power (left). In the mid-seventies, the company changed names to Virginia Mews Carpets and both Keith and Mark’s Dad became directors.

In 1981, when Mark left school, he became an apprentice carpet fitter and worked there for 5 years, before going self-employed as a contract carpet fitter. After both Frank Dalton and Geoff Regan passed on, Keith carried on the business up till his retirement in June 2014, when Mark took over and re-branded it as The Carpet Shop @ The Mews.
Could it be one of Southport’s longest established independent businesses, operating out of the same premises?
Mark’s successful career has also seen him spend 8 years managing at Carpet Right, before operating a United Carpets franchise for 6 years from 2006 to 2012, then on to open The Carpet Shop in Formby. An Ainsdale branch was added to The Carpet Shop in 2013, with both shops offering a wide range of carpets and flooring.
