The Kbsa has welcomed three new members into the association in July, continuing a trend of retailers joining to benefit from the support provided, during these challenging times.
Independent retailers Cole Roberts Ltd based in Loughborough, HDM Kitchens Ltd based in Taunton and Butler Interiors based in Lancashire are all independent showrooms that are open by appointment, as the lockdown eases.
Michael Cole of Cole Roberts said, “We’re delighted to have been listed as a Kbsa approved retailer having supplied kitchens and bathrooms to retail and trade customers for over 14 years. After recently moving into our brand-new 8,000 sq. ft. showroom in Loughborough, this was the perfect time to join. We wish to reassure our customers given the current uncertainty within the market due to the issues surrounding Covid-19. Kbsa membership will help us to achieve this, as well as complement the reliability and high quality associated with the brands we supply, including our very own Projëkt German Kitchens.”
Mark Butler of Butler Interiors added, “As a small independent business I often struggled finding time to do the non-essential tasks, COVID-19 came and like many I found myself with more time so I took the opportunity to clear my to-do list, which included taking my initial Kbsa enquiry further. When I contacted Kbsa chair Richard Hibbert he gave me help and advice that would normally only be offered to Kbsa members, he genuinely seemed happy to help another independent business during these unprecedented times. It was this level of service that made me certain I had made the correct decision of becoming a Kbsa member.”
Kbsa National Account Manager Allister Reed said, “We are delighted to welcome three new members. The wide ranging support and added value we can provide is proving to be an essential part of a retailer’s tool kit as they get back to business.”
