ANDERSON Grant, part of the Mercado Group is reportedly the first flooring trade counter in Essex (and only the second in the UK) to offer customers exclusive access to a carpet re-rolling area.
The 12.5x5m, undercover space has been designed to allow customers to cut floorcoverings to size before leaving the trade counter.
‘It’s important for Anderson Grant to not only offer first-class products, but services that customers need to make their jobs easier,’ said Paul Drury, commercial operations manager, Anderson Grant. ‘The re-rolling area means carpet fitters and floorlayers can cut floorcoverings to size, onsite, ensuring poor weather or lack of outdoor space doesn’t hold up a job.’
The new area has been possible, thanks to a move the Anderson Grant team made in November 2021. The team is now based on the Dukes Park Industrial Estate – a more convenient location, just off the A12. Anderson Grant says it continues to provide a wide variety of flooring and accessories, selling a range of floorcoverings from; LVT to carpet to sheet vinyl to hardwood floor and all the preparation, fixing and finishing tools to go with it.
The relocated trade counter now holds more stock of flooring prep materials and tooling – which means customers can reportedly collect flooring essentials for last-minute jobs and replace broken tools within minutes. A free hot drink and a sweet snack is also available while the Anderson Grant team picks the order.
‘Another important service our customer base has been able to rely on is our ability to order in floorcoverings for next day collection,’ continued Paul. ‘With the support of the Mercado distribution network, we’ve ensured this will continue to happen. If customers order before 4pm on any weekday, delivery will be made to the Anderson Grant trade counter and will be ready to collect at 7.30am, the very next working day.’
And the Anderson Grant team has ensured there are multiple ways to order; via the website – andersongrant.b2b-payments.co.uk, the app or by contacting the team directly on 01245 207552.
‘We still pride ourselves on traditional customer service. The website and the app have made it even easier for customers to order products, but we’re always pleased to hear a friendly voice or see a recognised face. We’ve built strong relationships with our customers over the years and our doors are always open to new and existing customers.’
The Anderson Grant team reportedly has a combined experience of 45 years and says there’s not a flooring problem it hasn’t helped solve.
‘Over the years, we’ve assisted customers with house renovations, building projects, office floorcoverings, hair salon floors, flooded homes and even a deck of a boat!’
Open from 7.30am until 4pm every weekday, the Anderson Grant team says it’s ready to welcome you to its new location.
