Shop in the City: Find bathroom inspiration at Bathstore
Comments (7)

IF you are looking for bathroom inspiration go no further than Bathstore in Gloucester.

From showers and toilets to taps and furniture the Bristol Road store has everything you need to create a dream bathroom.

Manager Mike Morgan said: “Everyone who walks through our door wants something different. That’s the best part of the job.

“The latest style is always changing and new technology is always being developed.

“We offer such a spectrum of products.”

Bathstore was founded 30 years ago in London and now has 172 shops nationwide.

Thirteen years ago, a franchise was taken out in Cheltenham and three years ago staff decided to set up a store in Gloucester.

Mike, who has been working for the store for 11 years, said: “We were looking at the business and thought that if we were going to be Gloucestershire’s bath store we should consider being in Gloucester.

“This unit became available and we jumped at the chance because it has its own parking.

“For us our big selling point is that we have national back up which brings our prices down but we offer a personal service that you would expect from an independent retailer.”

Bathstore’s sales team Jeff Hawkes, Gordon McQuoid and Phil Mannion use a computer aided design package to create bathrooms to fit the customer’s space before they buy.

“We sell as little or as much as a customer wants,” said Mike.

“If they just want to buy a tap we will sell them a tap and if they want the whole package we can work with them to design it and install it.

“The design package is free of charge and there is no obligation to buy.”

Bathstore is open from 9am to 6pm Monday to Saturday and 11am to 4pm on Sundays.

It is offering discounts on products throughout the store until Bank Holiday Monday.

    IsitJimKerr, I'm the one on the right, I failed an audition as an Elvis impersonator and ended up selling roll-top baths to people that only take showers just so they haven't got to clean the tub after using it, and the claw feet are just dust gatherers. My boss (on the left) hates me singing 'Jailhouse Rock' in the shop when we're not very busy....which is most of the time as we put the shop in the wrong place

    wouldn't buy anything down the Bristol Road, it's become a right dump down there. Should have put the showroom somewhere nicer like Hucclecote, Barnwood or Longlevens

    Customers are SUCH an inconvenience to shop assistants, aren't they! And how is half-way down Bristol Road regarded as coming under "Shop in the City"?

    True Nibbers............just hope they are better on customer service than Cheltenham branch a couple of years ago. I went in, had a quick look round and went to sit down on one of the three empty seats. There were three people at PC's the other side. When they eventually looked up and made eye contact, a good two minutes later, they looked surprised. 'Do you have an appointment' one asked. I said no, I didn't think I needed to in a shop. I just want a few.............' 'We're very busy' they interrupted 'Jane here is going to lunch, I have an appointment due in any moment (the shop was empty apart from me) and he's working on a quote'. 'Fine' I said 'forget it'.........and I did. They really were sh!t. So I looked around, went on t'internet, and bought some very tasteful items that make my walk-in shower absolutely brilliant and and totally unique. So in fact, they did me a big favour, 'cos I might have been stuck with a boring formulaic shower room from a stock computer programme.
