Bathstore is currently the UK’s largest bathroom retailer. It was founded in London in 1991 by Patrick Riley and Nico de Beer with the aim of making designer bathroom products available directly to the home owner. It started with just one catalogue containing a complete range of bathroom products at retail prices but now comprises 172 branches nationwide employing over 500 people. In 2003, Bathstore was sold to Wolseley but both its founders remained involved. Nico de Beer continued to work for the company and Patrick Riley retained the contract to supply products to Bathstore. In 2004 Riley started Bathroom Brands Limited (BBL) to further penetrate the growing market demand for designer bathroom products at realistic prices.
In May 2012, Bathstore was sold by Wolseley to Endless LLP, an independent UK based private equity house. At this point Nico de Beer left Bathstore and rejoined Patrick Riley at Bathroom Brands as Design Director. Since its acquisition, Endless LLP has invested £11m of working capital into Bathstore which has funded the opening of new branches and the further development of Bathstore’s e-commerce business. It is somewhat fitting that a store that started with a catalogue is now firmly plumbing the depths of the burgeoning e-commerce market!
