Completing the list is Ashley Ann which has eight kitchen, bathroom and bedroom showrooms in Scotland.

It is part of a drive towards securing fifty members by summer 2019, led by national account manager Allister Reed who joined the association in 2018.

Retail corporate chairman Simon Acres said: “We are delighted to welcome these new members.

“The Kbsa is experiencing an unprecedented period of growth in response to our efforts to build an association that is relevant and strong, able to support members as they face the market challenges ahead.

“We are pleased that the new Foundation Membership is proving popular and expect to see more retailers take advantage of this over the coming year.

“This unique package allows start-up businesses to take advantage of Kbsa membership earlier than they could have done previously, and enables us to offer them much needed support during their formative years.

“These are exciting times for the Kbsa as we drive forward our plans to make the association bigger and stronger, enabling us to be even more successful in promoting, protecting and supporting the independent kbb retail specialist.”

The Kbsa recently appointed Allister Reed as its national account manager.
