TILE RETAILER FURTHERS GROWTH WITH NEW STORE ACQUISITIONS

Rapidly-growing tile retailer Easy Bathrooms is set to open an additional two stores within the next two weeks, after signing leases on units in Bradford and Glasgow.

The move triples the company’s bricks-and-mortar presence on the UK high street, within just two years. Founded in 2013, the retailer now has 33 showrooms nationwide – compared to the 11 stores it had in April 2017.

Within a two-year period, the firm has also created over 90 jobs, seeing it open showrooms across the south of the UK, including a network of seven locations across Hampshire and Berkshire.

The Bradford and Glasgow stores will create an additional nine jobs- totalling a £300,000 investment – and are both set to open in mid-May.

Rob Holroyd, Contracts Manager at Easy Bathrooms, said: "We're proud to expand our network of showrooms throughout the UK, which supports our traders when it comes to inspiring their own customers with bathroom ideas. They can also send their clients to our showrooms to pick products and create a 3D visualisation of their space - so we look forward to working with more developers, as we expand."

The Bradford store is based at a former unit of Maplin, that went into administration in 2018; while the Glasgow showroom is the former site of Better Bathrooms, which collapsed earlier this year.

Neil Bell, Head of Retail for Easy Bathrooms, commented: “During a period when there's plenty of doom and gloom surrounding the UK high street, we are proud to expand and open bricks-and-mortar stores, alongside growing our online presence. Our strategy is to create a network of showrooms, where clients can see, touch and try our products before making a purchase.

“Both Glasgow and Bradford are former units of businesses which went into administration, so we’re delighted to fill these spaces and help revive local high streets.”
