In that time the company has gone from strength to strength with retail space now covering more than 20,000Sq. Ft. and 40,000Sq. Ft. of warehousing. We take pride in our reputation and always endeavour to provide excellent service to our customers. Dealing with all the major manufacturers allows us to offer a wide range of products to choose from, with over 1000 appliances on display. Many of our appliances are live allowing you to ‘try before you buy’ which is a major benefit of shopping locally.
Take time to view our large display of uniquely designed kitchens, from timeless classics to the most up to date contemporary kitchen furniture. If you are renovating your whole kitchen speak with one of our talented designers who will manage your project from start to finish and bring that dream kitchen to life. We understand it can be a worrying time, but your designer is on hand to help to ensure everything runs smoothly.
Through the years our Neff demonstration days have been a huge success, using our well-equipped demonstration kitchen. Showcasing their innovative products and cooking some wonderful dishes to delight the taste buds. Their home economist puts the products through their paces and shows you how to get the best results every time. Once you’ve made your choice talk to one of our friendly, knowledgeable and well trained staff.
We offer a unique ‘buy and store’ service where you can take advantage of a current offer or discount, and we will conveniently store your appliances until you are ready, in our 40,000Sq. Ft. warehouse.
Once your purchase is complete our two stores are ideally situated to provide a fast, friendly and efficient delivery and installation service, throughout the South West. Using our fully trained staff with local knowledge and our own fleet of vehicles we are able to provide the flexibility needed for deliveries, especially in the rural areas.
