GAP, the leading home improvement stockist for fascias, soffits and gutters, has just opened its doors in Blackpool to "illuminate" its position on the Fylde Coast, and further improve the service offered to customers in the area.
Situated on one of the busiest trading estates in Blackpool, the substantial 7,000 sq ft warehouse will be easy for customers driving past to spot, as the property has just been refurbished in instantly recognisable GAP colours. The building was in need of a major overhaul and GAP took the opportunity to re-clad the unit in their own Homeline brand Black Shiplap Cladding. GAP signage and logos in green, black and white add the finishing touch to help the new depot stand out!
The new Blackpool depot features a huge fitter-friendly trade counter stocking all the necessary tools, fixings, silicones and other relevant equipment so materials can be simply collected direct, without fear of long waits or low stock. The unit also boasts product displays for Rockdoor, Homeline, Homesmart, Internal Cladding and Firestone Flat Roofs.
Joint MD, Simon Bird, commented, "Blackpool is just the first of many new GAP depots planned to open this year across the country, and we're delighted to be able to get back on the ladder of growth by taking the GAP brand and customer service ethos into new areas. We're also pleased to have had the opportunity to promote Homeline's unique Heat Shield protected Black foiled cladding - and prove it works - by displaying it across the entire front and side of the building most of which is South facing".
