Robert Pinkus & Co. are pleased to report that award-winning Better Bathrooms, the largest independent bathroom and tiles retailer in the UK, are opening a new showroom in Romford this Friday (27th March).

As part of the company’s progressive expansion plans, the new showroom at Southend Arterial Road, Gallow’s Corner, will be the company’s first outlet in the South East and the 9th showroom in the Better Bathroom’s portfolio, alongside successful stores in Slough, Leicester, York, Manchester, Warrington, Wigan, a northern trade counter in Leigh, a southern trade counter in Didcot and 

Better Bathrooms takes the former 18,217 sq ft former SCS retail warehouse on a new 10 year lease from landlord Burney (Hornchurch) Ltd. Barlett Property acted as agent for the landlord and Robert Pinkus & Co LLP acted on behalf of Better Bathrooms. The property is situated adjacent to Gallow’s Corner Retail Park with occupiers such as DFS, Argos, Magnet and Halfords to name a few. 

CEO and founder Colin Stevens said, “We are delighted to add our first Greater London store to our property portfolio and have receruited a great team who are friendly, knowledgeable and from the local area. We are very excited about the store and the opportunity to be part of the Romford community. The new showroom looks great and it is a fantastic addition to the Better Bathrooms’ brand.” 

Robert Pinkus & Co. are Better Bathrooms’ sole property agent for their new store acquisition drive. Joe Assalone, Partner at the firm said, “Better Bathrooms looked at various sites in the locality but this particular property came out on top for a number of reasons namely the high customer footfall and strong brand names already trading successfully at this location, overall visibility, parking and accessibility for customers.

“The success of the brand and the quality of the products offered by this retailer is the main facilitator behind the company’s continued fast-tracked growth and we continue to search for properties across the UK that match what the Romford showroom has to offer.” 

The search for new retail sites continues with the well-established, well-funded company looking to secure properties from 15,000 to 20,000 sq ft over a maximum two floors in highly visible, easily accessible, non-prime retail locations throughout the UK.
