Tile Choice lays out the opposition for the second time at industry awards
Midlands-based independent tile retail chain, Tile Choice, is celebrating after winning an award for the second year in a row in an industry awards programme.
Tile Choice, with its head office in Wolverhampton and 15 stores across the central region covering West Midlands, Shropshire, Derbyshire, Worcestershire, Staffordshire and Northamptonshire, has won the 'Excellent in Multiple Retailing Award' from The Tile Association (TTA) Awards - the first time anyone has won this award for two consecutive years.
This thriving company has celebrated an exciting 12 months of business with continued growth due to its successful business model - offering great value for money, high quality on trend products, coupled with excellent customer service to both domestic and trade customers.
Testament to this is its staff training scheme which ensures high standards across all its stores. This is tested regularly by secret shopper visits to ensure all stores are performing above and beyond and regularly exceeding expectations for anyone who walks through the doors.
"After last year's win, we were all delighted to finally be seen as a player in the industry, but to win this award for the second time is such an honour," says Lee Rudkin, Marketing Director at Tile Choice. "We pride ourselves on offering great service and superior products, so to be acknowledged by our peers is a real boost to everyone here at Tile Choice.
"The Midlands has some outstanding businesses that are performing well even in these times of recession and we want to continue to change perception that everything isn't doom and gloom and the retail sector is alive and kicking. Exciting times are ahead for us and we are making a significant investment in digital marketing over the next few months to continue to grow the business and raise awareness of our offer. Here's to another successful trading year."
Winning a TTA award is a statement of excellence, unparalleled in the wall and floor tiling industry. It is an achievement that provides a platform for success, elevating the winners' standing within the industry and all awards are meticulously checked against strict financial, technical and service standards.
An extra feel-good factor about the TTA awards, which were hosted by Emma Jesson in Birmingham last month, were the kind donations which raised more than £2,300 on the night for the Children Today Charitable Trust. This charity helps disabled children and young people up to the age of 25 to enjoy a better quality of life by providing them with the specialised equipmentthey need. Since 2010 the TTA Awards dinners have raised well over £20,000 for this worthwhile cause.
Established in 1991, Tile Choice currently has a stock holding of 1.5 million pounds with 95% of its stock being imported directly from the world's leading manufacturers into its 30,000 square foot centralised warehouse and distribution centre.
Tile Choice prides itself on a hard earned reputation for quality and diversity in its product range at competitive prices, with the highest levels of customer service.
