Once upon a time...
Our story begins towards the end of 2012 with the decision to launch our first online store opening up a national sales capability for our new Nottingham based retail operations.
This enabled us to offer our (then) range of budget priced imported tub chairs to a wider audience, to some success. Over the next few years we work hard to improve our product range and to find answers to myriad of issues that tend to plague companies selling online. During this period we strike up a great working relationship with a few key English suppliers giving us access to a better quality product base and enabling us to offer a vast range of quality fabric and leather options, far surpassing what we had available before.
We open a new showroom on Trent Bridge in Nottingham, where we continue to offer our selection of retail options to local customers. During this period we experience significant growth in online sales, this increase in conjunction with us all now working in different premises prompts a bit of a rethink about how we best satisfy our customers moving forward. It was during this period that the initial idea for tubz was born.
Towards the end of 2015 we make the decision to consolidate down to one premise to maximize efficiency, this allows us to dedicate more resources towards expanding our online presence and improving customer service.
After settling in to our new premises we continue to increase the selection of our product range and move towards building stock levels for our best selling options. This enables us to offer a FREE next day delivery service on all our popular lines. We realise pretty quickly we need more space to cope with the increase in demand, so we expand to the adjacent unit giving us some much needed breathing room.
During this period we decide on a foray into the contract tub chair market, and with the addition of new industry leading contract fabric suppliers and a new discount structure for volume orders we continue to see growth. To this day we continue to successfully service both domestic and commercial enquiries.
After a period branding tubz on our existing website, we come to the realisation that the tubz brand deserves it's own dedicated website and begin work on https://tubz-uk.com
2019 and beyond
After five months of furious preparation our new site is ready!
tubz-uk.com is dedicated to increasing our already impressive selection of tub chairs and expanding our exclusive British designs even further. Also in conjunction with a select few suppliers we will be offering armchairs, accent chairs, and a greater selection of sofas and footstools.
