East Anglian independent builders’ merchants Ridgeons has opened a new showroom at its Cambridge North branch in Nuffield Road, Cambridge.
The £150,000 investment is part of a wider programme of renovation and expansion at the branch.
The showroom comprises 10 kitchens and 23 bathrooms by Symphony and Masterclass Kitchens as well as Neff, Bosh, SMEG, Roper Rhodes, Utopia, Heritage and Ridgeons’ own brand, Instinct, plus a Grohe display wall.
Branch Manager, Mark Johnson, said: “We are delighted with the showroom, which is already attracting positive customer feedback. We are confident that tradespeople will bring their own customers in, knowing that they will be fully supported by our trained showroom staff. For instance, our team uses 3D design software to help people plan bathrooms and kitchens. It’s such expertise and our bespoke approach to customer service that sets us apart from high street retailers.”
The branch has also recently added dedicated Anglia Tool Centre and PlumbStock trade counters and, Ridgeons’ tool hire partner, GR8, has also opened onsite. Cambridge North has also extended its range of building materials, added a new decorating centre and expanded warehouse space.
When Cromwell Road closes in late March, the branch will be Ridgeons’ largest in the city and the Cambridge delivery service will be centralised at the site.
Johnson added: “The branch’s £400,000 revamp is part of the changes to Ridgeons in Cambridge, which aim to modernise the business’ offering, and provide a more efficient and easier customer journey.”
Ridgeons’ new Cambridge flagship branch in Norman Way will open on 3 April.
