Online and bricks-and-mortar retailer Sanctuary Bathrooms is expanding its business with the opening of a new warehouse in Leeds.
The company says the new warehouse, situated next to its existing unit, will enable it to cater for what describes as “remarkable growth” in online sales over the past few years, which has been driven by its new website.
At just over 12,000sq ft, the new warehouse is almost double the capacity of the existing unit, which provides 7,000sq ft of storage. The extra space, says Sanctuary, will allow it to meet the growing demand for high-quality bathroom products from across the UK, as well as the Isle of Man, the Scilly Isles and the Channel Islands.
The new warehouse, says Sanctuary Bathrooms, will allow it to carry a broader range of products on-site and help it to achieve faster deliveries, including a next-day option. It says it will also help it refine and expand its ranges and enable it to import more own-brand products.
Director James Roberts said of the development: “The decision to invest in a large facility reflects our commitment to serving our dedicated customers better and meeting the escalating demand for our products. This expansion not only accommodates our current needs, but also positions us for continued success in the dynamic online marketplace.
“This strategic expansion marks an exciting milestone in our company’s journey and we look forward to continued growth and success in the years to come.”
The existing showroom, which is located near the warehouse, will continue to operate as normal.
Sanctuary Bathrooms was founded by James Roberts’s father Des in 2004 and is still a family-run business. Des ran a successful plumbing and heating business since 1981 and for many years installed bathrooms for a well-established Leeds showroom.
