Between the 2 – 6 September, Plumb Inn, the plumbing, heating and bathroom specialist based in Enfield, will be revealing a brand-new look– as it becomes one of the first to join forces with The IPG to open a ‘flagship’ store.
Plumb Inn was founded in 2010 by lifelong friends Ray Andes and Kevin O’Shea, opening with just three employees before quickly expanding to three London branches, and a workforce of 16. Heavily involved in the local community themselves, the company proudly support the IPG’s charity partner Missing People to help locate missing children in the area, as well as having recently supported Brimsdown Primary School.
Plumb Inn is excited to launch its flagship store and open the doors to its refurbished site where the company will be inviting both new and existing customers, as well as members of the local community, to be one of the very first to glimpse its new look. Visitors to the store during the launch will also be in with a chance to snap up some great offers, plus a goody bag, which will be given away every day of the launch.
The launch will also be accompanied by some VIP guests, including the Mayor of Enfield who will be in attendance. Pies and refreshments will be provided, with key suppliers, local and trade press also expected to attend.
Ray Andes, Managing Director at Plumb Inn, said: “Plumb Inn is now not just a member, it has joined the IPG family and together we can only become stronger. We have a new look trade counter and showroom, a new look website and an opportunity to be involved in marketing initiatives that as an independent merchant we could not achieve on our own. The IPG’s support of the independent sector will be pivotal to the development and growth of our business and our team are all looking forward to an exciting future”
Nike Lovell, Head of Marking at The IPG, said: “The next few weeks are set to be incredibly exciting for our members and us at The IPG. The launch of the flagship stores is something that we’ve been working on together for some months now, so to see it all come together – is incredible!
For me, these flagship stores represent everything that we at The IPG stand for – and that is to support local, independent plumbing, heating and bathroom specialists across the UK. I hope the grand launch week we have planned for Plumb Inn will encourage the local Enfield community to get involved, and truly get behind their own local independent!”
Plumb Inn’s store launch will follow closely behind Newline Plumbing & Heating Supplies, which opened its flagship store on 27 August in Kingswinford. A third store will open in October at Gas & Plumb Bits, based in New Milton.
