Team at Job's of Oxted

  Local independent retailer, Job’s of Oxted, is celebrating 110 years of serving the local community this year.  In this day and age that is an anniversary worth celebrating.  Over the years we have seen many changes, not only in our own high street but those in the neighbouring towns too.  So, what is the magic that Job’s of Oxted has?

It has been a family run business throughout all these years and with that comes the personal service you would expect from a local business.

In 1914, Edward Job set up his first ironmongery in Station Road West, Oxted.  After building up his successful business, 20 years later Edward branched out into selling furniture involving his young son, Maurice.

In 1954 the store moved further up the road to it’s current location at 46-50 Station Road West.

Sadly, Maurice Job passed away prematurely in 1973 so his wife Joan took over until she passed in 1980.  Their daugher Sally, along with her husband Paul, then continued to run the business until April 2023.  Since then it has been run by Ellie Eldergill, Colin, Graham and Margaret Jakes who all have a long history with the store.

Within their Oxted store, you can pop in and get a real feel of the products before you buy and have the opportunity to discuss in more detail the product features with any of the knowledgeable staff to help you make the best decision on your purchase.  Once you have made your purchase at the store, you have the benefit of the team putting together the furniture upon delivery to your home at no extra cost!

Their range of furniture has all rooms covered – from dining room and lounge to home office.  There is also a wide range of smaller, decorative items available to purchase.

It’s not just about furniture – the team can help you choose the right flooring for your home, providing a FREE NO OBLIGATION measuring service to provide a detailed quote on supply and fitting of carpets and vinyl.

If you can’t find what you are looking for on display, the team invite you to browse their brochures in store, in a relaxed atmosphere and will then be able to order items in for you.

So, if you’re looking for something new for your home, whether an accessory or revamping an entire room – the team at Job’s look forward to welcoming you soon.
