Pennine Home Improvements has started the new year as it means to go on, with a 28 per cent turnover increase from last January, and the opening of its largest showroom to date.
The leading North East retailer is celebrating a significant turnover of £1.57 million for January, putting success partly down to the opening of its new showroom in Dragonville Retail Park, Durham.
The expansion is Pennine’s first showroom in Durham, bringing five new jobs to the area. Plans are also in the pipeline to expand further, with the addition of at least one more showroom in the North East region, promising further employment opportunities.
Mark Tinnion, managing director at Pennine Home Improvements, said: “It’s a really exciting time for the Company, with the recent launch of our fifth and largest showroom, and a significant turnover increase that proves the outstanding efforts of the staff.
“The team’s hard work, focus and commitment to delivering the brand promises has really shone through for Pennine in January.
“We’re determined to continue this success throughout the year and hope to deliver a strong financial result for 2018.”
A night of live jazz saw the launch of the new Durham branch, on 10 February. The evening also included an official ribbon cutting ceremony with The Mayor and Mayoress of Durham, Councillor Bill Kellett and Councillor Jean Chaplow.
Consisting of seven conservatories and orangeries, as well as a state-of-the-art virtual reality design station, the new showroom gives more customers from across the region the opportunity to visualise their dream living space and see the quality of our products up close.
“With the new showroom’s state-of-the-art facilities, we expect it will make a significant contribution to turnover going forward, while offering our customers a new and exciting way to see our products,” added Mark.
“I’d like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to our customers for helping to make Pennine what it is today. We hope you will continue your support throughout 2018 and we can’t wait to see what the rest of the year has in store for the Company.”
