Vokins - Company History


The Company was originally known as Leesons & Vokins and was founded in 1882, occupying a retail shop in North Street, Brighton, just down from Ship Street.

Over the next 42 years, the trading partnership acquired a considerable number of freehold properties in Brighton town centre as its retail base expanded.
In 1924, the Partnership was dissolved by the division of the trading outlets.

By 1935, several of the smaller properties had been amalgamated to form a department store, which commenced trading as W H Vokins Limited in 1937. The trading name continued in use until 1983, when the Company changed its name to the current Vokins Limited.

In 1997, the department store was closed, as it was too small to meet the trading requirements of the time. It was decided to restructure the Company and focus on the developing furniture and bed business.

Since opening in 1985, the Furniture and Beds Superstore in Hove has been considerably extended from a selling space of some 10,000 square feet to the current retail showroom of 22,000 square feet.
Today, Vokins Limited is the largest furniture and beds centre in the Brighton and Hove area, located on an edge-of-town site on the Sackville Trading Estate, off Sackville Road, Hove.

Vokins Furniture Centre will be closing down in February 2015.

This is to make way for the future redevelopment of the Sackville Trading Estate in Hove.
We would like to thank our many customers and suppliers for the support they have given us over many years.
