Ranging has been reviewed with key brands including Mapei, Rubi and Schlutter displayed on eco friendly wooden fixtures, and deals and offers brought to life with digital inspiration screens.

Tile Giant managing Ddrector, James Heese, commented: “We carried out extensive research in the planning for this new concept store to make sure that we are meeting the needs of the professional tradesperson and the general DIY customer looking for expert advice and a warm friendly environment to shop.  

“With an education zone to help customers choose different accessories as well as a brighter and fresher feel to the store we’re confident this will feel like a whole new tile shopping experience.

“We’ve focused on the quality and breadth of our ranges and employed experts to make sure that every customer is given the quality service they should expect.

“If this concept store proves a success we will be looking at a wider portfolio rollout plan - I have every confidence the store will be a success and will set a new benchmark for a Tile store within market that has seen little innovation in recent years”
