BPS Build & Bake

This year we revamped our Leamington branch to give it a more contemporary touch, which has increased the area by 144m2. The previous showroom area has been removed along with the dividing wall to provide double the space which has allowed the branch to showcase a wider range of products, including a kitchen showroom, whilst also introducing new stock lines.

The concept behind this renovation was to create a clean, well merchandised environment for our customers and incorporate a mix of displays. The new layout has enabled the branch to organise products in to neat categories, complete with product information, making it easier for our customers to locate products.

This, along with our experienced staff will continue to help our customers make informed choices as to which products they require. Our aim is to provide our customers with a positive experience from start to finish, making BPS the first port of call in the area for any building or home improvement project, trade or retail.

We have a designated building area, where you will find anything from screws & fixings to tools & equipment. In addition to this, we also offer an impressive range of painting and decorating products to help you in your home improvements. Our Kudos Bathroom showroom has been relocated to the extended area of the shop floor with the addition of kitchens to our product mix. This has provided a more open and accessible environment, allowing the branch to showcase the latest designs from brands: Villeroy & Boch, Omega & Sheraton making BPS the go to premium showroom in the area.

The new shop and showroom was officially opened on the 23rd June 2018 by the Mayor of Leamington Spa, Heather Calver. To mark this special occasion the branch held special offers for one day only and exclusive competitions including a free makeover for your room and the chance to win £500 towards a kitchen or bathroom! The addition of kitchens to our product mix enables our customers to renovate all areas of their home with BPS. We are incredibly happy to offer our customers a wide range of services including kitchens & bathrooms. Our working kitchen is something we are rather proud of at BPS and we were pleased to invite Christine Wallace, from the Great British Bake Off, to attend at our Build & Bake event where she baked her famous Lemon Meringue Roulade! Christine went on to judge our BPS Bake Off where she enjoyed a variety of cakes including Red Velvet cupcakes, with the firm favourite being Coffee & Walnut cake.

Following on from the Build & Bake event we held a Trade Week with suppliers: Villeroy & Boch, Matki Showering, Sheraton Kitchens, LPD Doors, Crown Paint, & OX to name just a few. We are extremely proud to offer such a wide range of brands to our customers and give them the opportunity to meet representatives of these popular brands in order to make informed choices. To mark this special occasion the branch held a week of special offers and exclusive competitions with the opportunity to win prizes including: Grohe Bluetooth Speaker and Dickies Boots.

This is what John Dibble, Managing Director at BPS had to say:

“Our old shop & showroom had served us well for over 30 years, however many of our products were hidden in the warehouse never to be seen on the shop floor. The new layout draws inspiration from the open plan approach we have used at our other branches allowing us to showcase our product range in clear defined sections. The relocation of our Kudos Bathroom showroom has created a focal point and the addition of kitchens has expanded our product range further. I believe the newly renovated shop and showroom has created a fresh and modern environment, more fitting for a modern thinking builders merchant such as BPS”.
