Ideal Bathrooms resumes trading

UK bathroom distributor Ideal Bathrooms will resume trading today (4 May).

The company said it has introduced extensive measures to adhere to the government’s social distancing guidelines. The changes include limiting the workforce on site, the creation of designated one-way routes in all warehouses and offices, the introduction of sanitiser stations and provision of PPE where necessary.

Danielle Lillis, Ideal Bathrooms’ commercial director, said: “Since hitting pause on 27 March we have been closely monitoring the ever-changing situation and following government advice we have been able to make an informed decision as to when it was right for Ideal Bathrooms to begin trading again.

“Our sector plays a vital role in stimulating the economy and we recognise that many merchants and retailers are now increasing their activity levels and so we are pleased to once again open our doors and support our customers.

“Ideal Bathrooms’ number one priority remains the safety, wellbeing and health of our employees, customers and suppliers, therefore while we have decided to reopen, this will be carried out in phases to protect our workforce.”

The distributor will be running a reduced delivery service from its four depots, beginning tomorrow.
