We flung open the doors to our Swindon bathroom store for the first time on Saturday 8th June, after six weeks of preparation work, sweat and tears.
And in true Easy Bathrooms style, a local community radio station, Swindon 105.5, is set to benefit.
We’ll be donating 5% of the store’s profits – within the first four weeks – to the not-for-profit organisation, which is funded by grants, donations and corporate support.
The radio station is a huge part of the Swindon community, helping to promote everything that the region has to offer – so we’re very excited about our partnership.
We asked Shirley Ludford, station manager at Swindon 105.5, to talk about what it means to them.
She said: “It is a time for us to look forward and widen the radio’s support for the business, education and wider communities of Swindon, whilst seeking financial partners for our service through sponsorship, donations and advertising. We are therefore delighted that Easy Bathrooms has chosen to assist our service.”
Our new showroom is Swindon’s largest bathroom store, with 8,000 sq ft of bathroom and tile displays, over two floors. 0% finance is also available for people who want to spread the cost of their bathroom.
Adrian Hedges, manager of our Swindon store, was keen to comment on his new role.
He said: “We are extremely excited about the launch of the showroom. I have worked in bathrooms for 13 years and I have never seen such an inspirational store.
“We genuinely want to create something which Swindon people can use at their leisure, to create the bathroom they want. But we also want to give back, which is why it was so important to choose a local cause to partner with. The radio station is brilliant, and we look forward to even more fundraising opportunities in the future.”
The showroom has 70 fully-tiled displays and is open seven days a week, with free parking available. It has created four full-time jobs for the Swindon community.
