Retailer Wren Kitchens has welcomed Daryl Richardson, pictured right, and Zak Hodson, left – both of whom formerly worked at Bathstore, before the company fell into administration earlier this year – as its new kitchen designers for its Doncaster and Blackburn showrooms, respectively.

Overall, Wren has hired 25 former Bathstore employees, it said, noting that it “reached out to those affected such as skilled designers and retail employees who are passionate about delivering exceptional customer service”.

Richardson – who worked at Bathstore for 18 months – recently completed her training at the Wren Training Academy. “As soon as I stepped into a Wren showroom I was blown away, I wish I had worked for Wren sooner!” she said.

“It was obviously a tough time when Bathstore was going into administration so when the job opportunity came available at Wren I jumped at the chance. I had no doubts as I’d heard so many people speaking highly about it!”
