Betta Living's new store at Team Valley Retail Park out performs other stores across the UK
National fitted kitchen and bedroom specialist Betta Living chose Gateshead to open its newest state-of-the art showroom at Team Valley Retail Park. Already creating 10 jobs, its success means plans are in place for a further eight later this year.
The new Gateshead store which boasts 5,000 sq ft of prime retail space, in the former Moben store, opened on Boxing Day and has already become the company's fourth best performing store out of 41.
In an economic climate where retail is struggling, Betta Living has invested in Gatehead to offer customers an extensive showroom allowing them to browse displays of fitted kitchens, bathrooms and fitted bedrooms, and get specialist design advice tailored to their exacting needs.
Betta Living chief executive, Noel Dean said: "Gateshead has proved to be the perfect location for our newest store. It is a thriving area which has been proven by the success of the store within just seven weeks. We have recruited full time store staff, as well as kitchen and bedroom fitters who serve the local area."
Dean continued: "In difficult trading times for some retailers, we're investing and demonstrating that consumers are spending if the offer is right. We've developed services to provide our customers with a hugely competitive and personalised service. We've spent time researching how this retail sector is changing and developed our offering to deliver what a modern consumer demands.
"We're currently offering amazing deals and introducing new ranges to our kitchen and bedroom products so that customers to the new showroom will currently enjoy exceptional prices and quality products and home installation. We're now experiencing one of our most successful trading periods - 24% uplift in YOY sales - and we feel it's down to our service and constant innovation in this sector."
Customers can also take advantage a free home design visit from one of the company's design consultancy team.
There are currently a number of lucrative offers available including discounts of up to 60% on both bedrooms and kitchens and for a limited period Betta Living customers can get up to £250 worth of Kylie at Home bedding for FREE*.
