Gibbs & Dandy has made a splash with customers by hosting an opening event to unveil its extensive new bathroom showroom.
The Bedford-based builders’ merchant, known for its range of building materials and plumbing and heating products, recently invested £87,000 into the new 240-square-metre display area.
More than 20 leading bathroom suppliers have been added to the showroom, including renowned industry brands such as Ideal Standard, Utopia, Roca, Heritage, Crosswater, Matki and Aqualisa.
Tradespeople, as well as the public, were given an opportunity to explore exhibitions across the 240-square-metre display area in Barker’s Lane, Bedford. Around 32 bays in total were introduced and displayed at the opening evening, which showcased a range of contemporary, modular, fitted and traditional bathroom styles.
Bathroom experts were also present to provide advice on fittings and answer questions from customers.
Gibbs & Dandy Branch Manager Stuart Harm said: “We identified that our customers have an interest in exploring bathroom ranges and that this event would be the best way to showcase our new, wider range of suppliers.
“It’s very encouraging to receive such positive feedback for the event from customers. Many attendees stayed well beyond the presentation’s finish time to explore the bathrooms on show and ask questions to the experts on hand.”
Local first-time home buyer Liam Roberts was present on the evening, seeking advice about which bathroom suite would best suit his needs.
He said: “The display evening was very productive, with direct access to suppliers who were incredibly helpful– all of my questions were answered and I left with a good idea of what to do next with my bathroom.”
The new bathroom showroom is now open to both the trades and public at Gibbs & Dandy, Barker’s Lane, Bedford. For more information please visit www.gibbsanddandy.com
