A BATHROOM showroom has opened in Aughton after a husband and wife decided to make their dream to open a store become reality.
Jennifer and David Smith, from Aughton, have been involved in the bathroom trade for ten years and have a great deal of knowledge about the bathroom business.
David takes charge of fitting the bathrooms while Jennifer takes care of the running of the in- creation showroom.
Jennifer said: “This is our first store but we would love to expand as time goes on into other stores around West Lancashire and beyond.
“The shop came onto the market and we thought it’d be the perfect location for us.
“It’s been hard work, and it’s taken us a whole year to get the store up to standard we wanted, but it’s worth it.
“We offer the complete bathroom package from design to fit and have had a lot of interest from the community, even though we’ve only been open a couple of weeks.”
Mayor of West Lancashire Iain Ashcroft cut the ribbon on the new showroom on November 14 and the opening was celebrated with Champagne and canapés.
Jennifer said: “The Mayor was delighted with the showroom and could not believe how we had changed the building around and produced such a outstanding showroom.
“He wished us a lot of luck as he toasted our new business.”
The business, on Liverpool Road, is open seven days a week and sells brands like Porcelanosa, Vitra and Waters Baths, to name but a few.
