Bathroom franchise Ripples has celebrated the opening of its newly-renovated Bath showroom with a launch party attended by over 140 guests. A red carpet, black-tie doorman, magician and Champagne reception were just some of the highlights at the event. Owned by Kim and Michel Marcer, who also own the Bristol franchise, the new-look Bath showroom features the first Axor Concept Store.
The official ribbon cutting was performed by Hansgrohe Managing Director, Iain McKinlay, Kim and Michel Marcer and Ripples CEO, Roger Kyme.
The decision to launch the Axor concept store from within the Ripples Bath outlet was to bring together two winning formulas.
Rob West, Hansgrohe National Sales Manager, said: “Ripples was a first choice for us, we know Kim and Michel well, we know the showroom well and as one of our largest clients in the UK, Ripples is the perfect partner. Ripples lives, eats and breathes bathrooms, it knows what it is doing and to take the concept to Bath was an important factor – as a retail centre Bath is up there with the best cities in the UK so the match was perfect.”
