The two-storey 1,400sq ft Bath store – the first in the city – is situated near the Waitrose supermarket on Saracen Street, has three staff and is managed by owner Rob Cash, who has more than 15 years of kitchen design experience. He previously managed the Kutchenhaus store in Bristol.
The store will supply Nobilia kitchens from Germany and will harness the latest technology to provide its customers with virtual appointments and use its 3D online planning and design tool to create kitchens remotely for those customers not wishing to go to the store.
Commenting on the move, Cash said: “The team is incredibly excited to be opening the brand-new store in Bath, and are looking forward to welcoming the community through the doors. We plan on having a socially distanced launch, where we will invite people to the showroom in specific staggered time slots.
“It has taken six weeks to completely transform the space to Kutchenhaus’s high-quality standards. We are looking forward to meeting shoppers and introducing them to the new showroom. There are a number of home-improvement companies in this area of Bath, which will make it a perfect place to visit if you are planning to improve your home. Our location is very similar to the location of our Bristol showroom, which gives us confidence we can be successful in the town.”
National head of sales and operations for Kutchenhaus, Sean Ford, said: “Kutchenhaus is on an ambitious growth path over the next two to three years. However, being in the grip of a global pandemic has certainly presented some challenges and even positively altered the way we do business in some cases. It is therefore extremely satisfying that Rob and the team are now in a position to be able to open a new store in Bath and offer local customers the opportunity to plan and design their dream kitchen.
“We are very excited to be part of the new showroom opening in Bath – a community we believe is in a good vibrant location and is connected well to the surrounding areas. The new store will no doubt offer an engaging store environment and deliver a high-quality product, a market opportunity which we know is currently in high demand. We wish Rob and the team all the best and wait to see their future success.”
