As advances in construction move forward, we find it
necessary to move forward also. As of
April 1, 2012, Better Bath and Tile will be closing the retail outlet showroom
located on Howell Avenue. In 1975, when
this business opened, there were no big box stores, or national retail
outlets. Family owned retail stores were
the only way for consumers to attain their remodeling needs. That is no longer true. ALL of the wholesale distributers we use to
provide our customers with the quality items we install on a daily basis have
new showrooms, displaying ALL of their products, from ceramic tile to plumbing
fixtures, which they also did not have in 1975.
We can no longer show the huge amount of options out there for consumers
to pick from. Along with the access we
have to these new showrooms, and the advancement of technology and the
internet, we will be able to provide our customers all of the services we
always have, with more flexibility and
less operational cost, saving our customers the money they need.
Our business has gone through many transitions over the
nearly 40 years we've been here. This is
no different. We once stocked all the
items we sold. Now there are so many
variety of items, outlets to get them from, and vendors from local, national,
and even internationally, that this retail showroom is now obsolete. We look forward to continuing our
relationships with our past and future customers, and our new way of helping
consumers with their remodeling projects.
