Undated Newcast handout photo of an inside of a Carpetright store. PRESS ASSOCIATION Photo. Issue date: Tuesday June 28, 2011. Carpetright has reported a 70% slide in full-year profits and warned it will close more stores in an effort to weather the consumer downturn. The floor coverings specialist said profits reduced to £6.6 million in the year to April 30 after householders were put off making major purchases and also found it harder to obtain mortgages in order to move home.
