Better Bathrooms opens Arch 2 in Manchester
Following the success of the opening of Better Bathrooms' new Manchester showroom in 2010, the bathrooms and tiles retailer has opened phase 2 of the store.
The initial Manchester arch opened in July last year and since its opening, it has proven extremely popular with the local residents and has become one of the retailer's busiest stores. It was always inevitable that the showroom would need to expand, but the speed at which the new arch has been made available to the public is phenomenal. With only six months passing since the opening of the first phase, the new arch is up and running and features even more of Better Bathrooms' outstanding product range.
The second phase is very much focused towards the designer end of the bathroom market, with a range of luxury bathroom suites available from manufacturers such as Imperial Bathrooms and Jacuzzi. Despite the designer labels, Better Bathrooms has still managed to keep to its slogan of 'better prices', by offering up to 20% off the high street brands.
Like phase one, the new arch has two floors which means double the amount of great deals for customers. When asked about the opening of the second arch, area sales manager Peter Thornton says: "We couldn't wait to open the secondary arch after seeing how popular the store had been with our local customers. We have so many great products to offer, we simply couldn't squeeze them all into the space we had and we weren't giving our customers the full Better Bathrooms experience.
"With all the extra space, we have been able to present some of our brand new bathroom suite designs, which up until now, have only available to view and purchase online."
Development work is now underway for a third archway, which is due to open later in 2011, with the prime focus being on the retailer's spectacular range of bathroom tiles. The opening of a third arch will confirm Better Bathrooms' status as the largest bathroom showroom in Manchester.
