QS Supplies, an independent wholesaler and retailer of bath and sanitaryware, has opened a new showroom in Leicester.

Representing an investment of £250,000, the new premises provides the business with over 8,000 sq ft of space to display its wide and growing range of products from some of the leading brands.

Commenting on the opening, Farook Member, a director at QS Supplies, said: “The opening of our new Leicester showroom marks a new and existing chapter in our history. It’s also indicative of QS Supplies’ impressive success and growth to date, as well as reflective of our ambitious plans for the future.

“Historically, we have operated largely as an online business but we wanted to build on that and open a bricks and mortar showroom as part of our commitment to offering the best products at the best prices.

“We recognised that while many customers are happy to browse, compare and ultimately buy products in a virtual space, others prefer a more physical presence where they can actually see the items in the ‘flesh’.”

In line with the extensive and diverse nature of its product range, the new QS Supplies showroom enjoys a number of well-defined areas and departments, separated by product category. This includes bathrooms and suites, bathroom furniture, bathroom mirrors, radiators, kitchens, taps, towel rails, boilers, gas fires, doors, plumbing and much more.

The vast majority of items on display will be available ex stock thanks to the business’ in-depth stock holding capabilities.

Those visiting the new showroom will also be able to discover the latest products from a number of respected brands including: Crosswater, Simpsons, Miller Bathrooms, Roper Rhodes, Pura, Flova, Beo Bathrooms, Aqualisa, Duravit, Heritage, Twyfords, Vitra and Smedbo.

The new showroom also benefits from product demonstration areas which allow customers to see products being put through their paces, as well as a coffee area which provides a space to relax, reflect and enjoy some light refreshment either before or after making purchases.

M Member added: “The opening of our new showroom comes after much hard work and considerable investment. We’re absolutely delighted with this milestone and extend our gratitude to our staff for their continued contribution and our customers for their continued support.

“We’re confident the new showroom will play an important role in helping our diverse customer base to take advantage of our extensive range and our commitment to offering levels of service that are second to none.”

The new QS Supplies showroom is located at 72-74 Forest Road, Leicester LE5 0DG.
