Three New Easy Bathrooms Showrooms in Willerby, Uckfield and Brentford
Easy Bathrooms has opened a new showroom at The Trade Yard Willerby. Next to the Willerby Shopping Park and with neighbours at The Trade Yard including Screwfix and Toolstation, the new showroom was busy even before the official opening at the weekend.
Tomas Sereika, manager of the store, said: “We expected to do really well because thousands of people use the big retail park and the only way out is past our front door, but we had a soft opening initially and were crazy busy.
“In addition to the families from the shops, we had the traders coming here for the other businesses and discovering us.”
We already have 11 branches in South and West Yorkshire with another 80 stretching from the M62 corridor to the south coast and a workforce of nearly 600.
Before the new opening, the nearest branches to Hull were Doncaster and Lincoln.
We have recently announced plans for a new £5m headquarters in Wakefield, the opening of our 100th store by Christmas and a target of 175 showrooms by 2023.
Sereika and his assistant manager, Andy Musgrave, form a full-time team of four at the new branch and between them bring extensive experience in the bathrooms and tiling sector. The new store offers nearly 5,500 sq ft of display space on the ground floor with around 3,000 sq ft of mezzanine space.
Sereika said: “I am delighted to join an established bathroom brand which has plans to expand and become the UK’s number-one bathroom supplier. The products we have in store are bang on trend and suit any type of project. The layout of the store enables us to give customers an idea of how to style the fittings, and our expert bathroom team will help people design and visualise their space free of charge using our ArtiCAD 3D system.”
The business has invested £100,000 in fitting out the store, which is open to the trade and the public seven days a week.
Neil Bell, head of retail for the company, said: “We are expanding our stores with the intention of creating a network of showrooms where people can see, touch and try our products before making a purchase – alongside increasing online sales.
“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.”
Paul Swallow, the company’s contracts manager, said: “We’re delighted Easy Bathrooms have chosen The Trade Yard Willerby as they continue their own phenomenal expansion and we’re confident they will soon have a new neighbour and another of our sites will be at capacity.”
Other new showrooms recently opened are:
Uckfield is located in the Bellbrook Industrial Estate, next to Topps Tiles, Toolstation and Screwfix with free parking.
