Two new companies have joined the KBSA this week, as kitchen retailers begin to re-open for business.
Ridgeway Interiors and The Wood Works, both independent retailers, have joined the association, and each noted the KBSA’s deposit protection scheme as the main motivation for membership.
Joshua Delane, director at The Wood Works said, ‘As customers return to kitchen showrooms, they may be more cautious about a company’s stability following the uncertainties of the Covid-19 epidemic.
‘We want to re-assure them that our business is as robust as it has always been. The KBSA accreditation and the option of the deposit protection insurance illustrates our credentials, and provides an extra level of trust and protection when dealing with our showroom.’
Tony Morel from Ridgeway Interiors said, ‘KBSA membership has many benefits for us. The advice and information that will help us keep up to date with legislation, access to the finance options, as well as the third party accreditation and deposit protection scheme that helps consumers buy with confidence.’
KBSA National Account Manager Allister Reed adds, ‘We are delighted to welcome two new members. Our deposit protection is proving to be a valuable tool for members, helping to provide peace of mind to those worried about a retail business’s stability in the aftermath of Covid-19.
‘Indications are that the number of projects being registered with the deposit protection scheme is rising as our members get back to business.’
