We would like to dedicate today's blog post to John Francis, the founder of family business, Just Fabrics, who sadly passed away, aged 64, on the 04.01.2012 at home surrounded by close friends and family.
Just Fabrics was originally started as a market stall in Chatham in the late 1980's. Due to the stall's popularity the business was able to expand and by the early1990's the business had branched out across Kent with stores opening in Chatham, Gillingham and Canterbury. The Chatham branch was then taken over by John's daughter Kerry in 1996 and still remains today.
A tribute for John was posted in the Medway Messenger on the 16th Jan 2012, it said;
"A FORMER Medway businessman and Conservative Kent county councillor has died after a battle with cancer.
Many of the staff and customers of Just Fabrics, old and new, still remember John with great affection and we here at Just Fabrics would like to thank them for the kindness and support they have shown over the years and during this hard-time.
From friends, family and all of us at Just Fabrics, you will be greatly missed.
All our love and may you rest in peace.
