Online retailer Bathroom Takeaway has announced that it will open its second storefront and trade counter in Birmingham.
Based in Sutton Coldfield, the company has invested £250,000 in the new 4,000sq ft store, which will see a soft launch on March 1 with it officially opening the week before Good Friday (March 30), according to managing director Julian Smith.
The site was formerly the Plumb Center on Minworth industrial park and the new store will create five new jobs in the area.
The outlet will showcase a wide range of bathroom suites, towel rails and furniture units, which suit a range of budgets – from low-cost bathrooms through to luxury suites that have been featured in national consumer magazines but priced from just £199.97.
Bathroom Takeaway store development manager Michael Ellis said: “Birmingham has been on our radar for some time as we already have a strong online trade customer base in the Midlands. The plan is to be up and running this spring with exciting times ahead.
“Following the success of the Manchester and Birmingham ‘Takeaways’, the plan is to then open a store in London as we’ve already identified three possible sites. It will be a case of just watching this space.”
