Yorkshire retailer set to open bricks and mortar stores in Glasgow and Bradford


Yorkshire retailer set to open bricks and mortar stores in Glasgow and Bradford


"Glasgow is our first location outside of England and its a 400-display superstore, our biggest yet which is a huge opportunity for us to grow our brand. Its a very exciting time for us."
Neil Bell



Rapidly-growing Yorkshire retailer, Easy Bathrooms, is set to open an additional two stores within the next two weeks, after signing leases on units in Bradford and Glasgow.

The move triples its bricks and mortar presence on the UK high street, within just two years. Founded in 2013, the retailer now has 33 showrooms nationwide – compared to the eleven stores it had in April 2017.

Within that two-year period, the firm has also created over 90 jobs, seeing it open showrooms across the south of the UK, including a network of seven locations across Hampshire and Berkshire.

The Bradford and Glasgow stores will create an additional nine jobs, totalling £300,000 investment – and are both set to open in mid-May.

Neil Bell, head of retail for Easy Bathrooms, said: "Our Bradford store is our ninth showroom in the region, which we're incredibly proud of. We're a Yorkshire-based company; and we are pleased to be able to create more employment opportunities across our home county. On the flip-side, Glasgow is our first location outside of England – and it’s a 400-display superstore, our biggest yet – which is a huge opportunity for us to grow our brand. It’s a very exciting time for us.”

The Bradford store is based at a former Maplin unit – which went into administration in 2018; while the Glasgow showroom is the former site of Better Bathrooms, which collapsed earlier this year.

Neil continued: “During a period when there's plenty of doom and gloom surrounding the UK high street, we are proud to expand and open bricks and mortar stores, alongside growing our online presence. Our strategy is to create a network of showrooms, where people can see, touch and try our products before making a purchase.

“Both Glasgow and Bradford are former units of businesses which went into administration, so we’re delighted to fill these spaces and help revive local high streets.”
