Taskers PLC

A long-established family-run business, Taskers PLC has expanded into one of the UK’s leading and most innovative independent home stores. Set up nearly sixty years ago with a £10 loan, the company’s turnover now approaches £25 million, with over 250 staff employed in a total of 18 departments.

Its two huge retail sites in the Merseyside area now stock everything for the home and garden, from furniture for bedrooms, dining-rooms and living-rooms, kitchens and lighting to the latest garden furniture designs and barbecue equipment.
