KBSA has flying start to 2023 with sign-up of six new retailers

New KBSA foundation member Three River Kitchens and Interiors in Chelmsford

The Kitchen Bathroom Bedroom Specialists Association (KBSA) has signed up six new retailers in a year where it has ambitious plans to double its membership.

The retailers joining the ranks of the KBSA are Escapology Design in Lydney, Gloucestershire, Holtams in Belper, Derbyshire, Mobalpa in Pinner, Middlesex, Nova Kitchens in Woking, Surrey, The Kitchen and Bath Co in Leeds. The new foundation member is Three River Kitchens and Interiors in Chelmsford, Essex.

Escapology Design is a family-run business offering kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms. Holtams Kitchens and Bathrooms is also a family business boasting 30 years’ experience in the industry.

Nova Kitchen Designs has more than 55 years of experience between its team members and prides itself on forward-thinking designs, while the Mobalpa franchise in Pinner is run by Mohammed Yaqub who said he was very impressed by the benefits of KBSA membership, particularly the substantial savings he will make of card processing fees.

The Kitchen and Bath Co in Leeds is owned by Simon Davis and his interior designer and business partner Hannah Hatt. Davis has 30 years’ experience in the industry and showcases a hand-picked selection of products from leading European manufacturers.

The last new retail joiner is foundation member Three River Kitchens and Interiors, which launched its new showroom last year.

Foundation membership is open to showrooms that have been established for at least six months but have not been in business for the required two years to apply for full membership.

Commenting on the influx of new retail members, retail and corporate membership director Malcolm Scott said: “I am delighted to welcome our five new members and foundation member to the KBSA. This year will be a significant year for the KBSA as we drive forward our ambitious plans to double our retail membership.

“Our five-year plan includes a considerable investment to increase the profile of the KBSA and improve member benefits to include payment guarantee schemes, national credit card deals and others that will enable retailers to operate more efficiently and profitably. The support and business benefits that the KBSA provides makes it a trusted partner for independent retailers as they negotiate the uncertain times that lie ahead.”
