BASILDON'S former Bathstore showroom, which went into administration in June 2019, has been taken over by Easy Bathrooms.

The former store at Southernhay Retail Park, in Basildon, has been leased and renovated by the growing bathroom retailer, Easy Bathrooms.

The takeover comes as part of the firm’s plan to be the UK’s number-one bathroom brand.

Saving four jobs, Easy Bathrooms has invested £100,000 into the 3,000 sq. ft. retail space, installing a mezzanine floor and more than 50 fully-tiled displays.

Easy Bathrooms already has stores across Essex, including Chelmsford and Colchester, with an additional 53 showrooms across England.

The new store, which opened just before the Covid-19 lockdown, is open seven days a week, from 8am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm on Saturdays and 10am-4pm on Sundays.

Peter Norman, manager at the Basildon store, said: “I am delighted to be joining Easy Bathrooms at a time when the company is going through sustained growth.

"The brand is becoming increasingly well-known nationally and I’m so excited to help spread the word throughout the Basildon area.

“Our products are beautiful, but affordable – especially because we offer finance – and I think it’s brilliant that we can offer this to homeowners locally. We also offer free 3D designs which help people to visualise how their new bathroom could look.”

Easy Bathrooms offers its own-brand "affordable luxury" products, such as bathroom furniture, designer radiators, walk-in showers, freestanding baths and mirrors.
