UK bathroom retailer bathstore has launched its first international franchise in Doha, Qatar.
The new franchise is in partnership with Manazel International Enterprises (WLL). Franchise owner Yousif Al Khater was joined at the store’s opening opened by bathstore chief executive Gary Favell, deputy chief executive Dean Weston, as well as other business owners and leaders and the British ambassador to Qatar.
The store will follow the UK format with displays on two floors and all products stocked locally. A variety of bathroom suites, brassware, furniture, baths and ceramic sanitaryware will be available.
Favell said: “This launch marks the next step in bathstore’s ambitious plans for growth, and we’re delighted to be in business with Mr Al Khater in opening bathstore’s first ever international store.”
Al Khater added: “I would like to thank bathstore and Mr Favell for trusting me to take the brand forward on its international journey. bathstore has a prestigious reputation and I am honoured to carry the torch in the Middle East.”
