Seven new members as KBSA continues recruitment drive
The Kitchen Bathroom Bedroom Specialists Association has announced that seven new members have been accepted into the Association, continuing the drive towards 50 new retail members by summer 2019.
The latest new members include one corporate member, Ashley Ann, with eight kitchen, bathroom and bedroom showrooms in Scotland; as well as Foundation member Kessler Furniture Group, based in Cumbernauld.
The new retail members include Hendon, London-based Kitchens Continental (pictured are the company's Steve Columbine and Bernard Miel with KBSA retail corporate chairman Simon Acres); Simply Kitchens in Leicester; Jacob Roberts Interiors of Langford, Bedfordshire; Imperial Design (KB) of Palmers Green, London and Sherwood Kitchens which has two showrooms, one in Witney and a second in Kidlington, Oxfordshire.
"We are delighted to welcome these new members," said Simon Acres. "The KBSA is experiencing an unprecedented period of growth in response to our efforts to build an Association that is relevant and strong, able to support members as they face the market challenges ahead.
"We are pleased that the new Foundation membership is proving popular and expect to see more retailers take advantage of this over the coming year. This unique package allows start-up businesses to take advantage of KBSA membership earlier than they could have done previously, and enables us to offer them much needed support during their formative years.
"These are exciting times for the KBSA as we drive forward our plans to make the association bigger and stronger, enabling us to be even more successful in promoting, protecting and supporting the independent KBB retail specialist."
