And finally… Edinburgh store ordered to close by administrators asks customers to name their price in stock clear-out



An Edinburgh branch of national retailer Better Bathrooms, ordered to cease trading and close by administrators, FRP Advisory, is inviting local residents to name their price for its stock.

The Better Bathrooms Megastore on Gorgie Road, Edinburgh is one of three stores which has been told to close by its administrators.

The closing down sale starts at 9am on Friday 10th May and runs until 4pm on Sunday 12th - after which, the store will be permanently closed.

The huge stock clearance covers all items in the store, from high-quality bathroom suites, to display items, fittings and tiles - some items are being sold at discounts of more than 60 per cent, while no reasonable offer will be refused for others.

Nick Glynne, managing director at the Buy It Direct group, which has acquired the business in a bid to save it, said: “There’s a real opportunity here for customers to grab a genuine bargain. This cash only sales weekend will allow customers to come into store on a first come, first serve basis and name their price for certain items, and take advantage of savings of more than 60 per cent off others - the only catch is that some items may need tools to disassemble, and all items need to be taken away on the day, so customers will need to come prepared.

“With spring weekends being a popular time for DIY and renovations, local residents will be able to take full advantage of the fantastic bargains on offer.”
