County Durham family firm set to invest after online orders rocket in lockdown

The Decorating Centre Online has seen internet sales increase by over 300% in the last year.

A family run decorating business in County Durham is set to invest in its online operations after seeing a 300% leap in internet orders in a year.

Since the first lockdown amid Covid-19 restrictions, the Decorating Centre Online (DCO) has seen a huge leap in sales, putting the Coundon based business on track to exceed £3.8m this year.

Providing a range of wallpapers, decorating supplies and paints, including colour match equivalents using the latest paint mixing equipment, the “Stay at Home” orders in place over the past 12 months have seen a surge in people looking to spruce up their homes.

At the start of lockdown, the DCO team was rushed off its feet keeping up with orders. Now, looking ahead, its owners plan to invest in its online offering as demand continues.
