The Bath Store, a first-of-its-kind in Sri Lanka, is set to meet every conceivable bathroom need under one roof while offering absolute convenience. Committed to uncompromising quality and elegance,
The Bath Store will enable the creation and outfitting of bathrooms that suit every individual need, offering chic products with a superior finish at a reasonable price.
The brainchild of Director Ranil Samarawickrema, the store is a first-of-its-kind and will feature standard bathroom hardware in addition to day-to-day needs – from spa soaps at non spa prices, towels and bathrobes to taps and fittings, high quality toilet rolls and everything in between.
With an inclination for innovation, Samarawickrema plans to offer a new, all-embracing experience along with convenience, by providing high quality bathroom products under one roof with highly-trained staff at hand to advise and guide customers.
“The selection on offer also includes a designer tile selection featuring a wide variety of colours and styles, guaranteed to liven up floor and wall spaces while adding value to the home. We pay as much attention to seemingly insignificant details such as toilet tissue, and will stock the world’s only brand of coloured toilet tissue. Renova produces the ultra-premium tissues that are famously appreciated by stars such as Beyoncé for their cotton-like texture,” asserted Samarawickrema.
“Sri Lankans are increasingly conscious about quality, value and design and we are no longer ready to wait until tomorrow for today’s products. We want Europe’s designs when they get them. The Bath Store is set to be the most comprehensive bathroom store in town, offering best-in-business brands and staff with years of experience and intensive training,” he emphasised.
Located in a prime spot in Nawala, yet away from the traffic-congested hustle and bustle, the store features 2,000 sq. ft. of stylish space including all bathroom needs and top-notch customer service, offering an experience that is sure to satisfy.
“Sri Lankans appreciate good customer service. We want to consult trained people who will educate us, not sales people who will sell to us. At The Bath Store, you are joining a service club, where we will offer everything from customer service call-backs to advice on products,” pointed out Samarawickrema, commenting on the need for such a store in Sri Lanka.
A Director at his family-owned business Charter House International, a specialist in bathware and kitchen solutions and a formidable industry leader affiliated with powerhouse brands such as Laufen, Grohe, lnda, Bravat and Presto, Samarawickrema brings a wealth of experience in the category. A dynamic innovator, he successfully introduced the hostel concept to Sri Lanka’s budget tourism market in December 2012. Be it a unique bathroom that will make an impressive statement or a comfortable and welcoming cocoon, The Bath Store, which opened on 6 October, is geared to offer all that and more for discerning clients to create the bathroom of their dreams.
