Clearing stock before the move back: Sleeping Giant owner Warren Morrison in the temporary premises along Blaxland Road.

The Sleeping Giant store on Blaxland Road was relocated in late March to premises about 100 metres away.

But so many items had to be transported from the old premises to the new temporary one, owner Warren Morrison says they allowed two weeks for the move.

Mr Morrison, who estimates that around 1,000 items were trekked to the new premises, says it all went smoothly.

“We allowed two weeks for it and we got it done in a week, the bulk part of it,’’ he says.

“And hopefully it will be a week going back.’’

Hopefully many of the bedroom suites, mattresses, bases and ensembles won’t be going back when the old premises behind the BP service station has had a makeover.

Mr Morrison, whose Sleeping Giant outlet in Campbelltown is the only franchise in Australia, says the plan is to sell as much stock as possible before moving back.

“Our floor stock clearance will continue and we will be pushing it in a big way between now and returning to the renovated premises down the road,’’ he says.

“We’ve got so many products and models that we’ve been buying over time, so we want to clear out from here and our two warehouses which are located around the corner from here.

“When we go back, the refurbished premises will be bigger and better and we will be going into the lounge and dining retail areas when we reopen, with a popular line that head office offers – James Lane.

“It’s in 10 stores already and earmarked for another six this year, including ourselves.

“And that’s why we want to clear out some of the styles of our current stock to make room for all the new stuff in the renovated premises.’’

Mr Morrison said he was confident Sleeping Giant would be back operating out of its refurbished old premises behind the BP service station before Christmas.

“We’re hoping September or October,’’ he said.

“We won’t be reinventing the wheel, but the refurbishment means it will be a lot bigger, a lot brighter.’’
