CPS marks 300th store opening with new Durham branch

Published:  17 September, 2015

City Plumbing Supplies (CPS) has cut the ribbon at its 300th trade outlet, which includes an improved bathroom showroom.

Branch staff at the new CPS Durham store kicked off the celebration with help from Durham City Football Club, alongside local plumbing and heating installers.

The new branch, located on the Abbey Road Retail & Business Park, enlisted the help of the club alongside CPS managing director John Frost to celebrate the company milestone on 11 September.

CPS-sponsored player Nicky Allen assisted the official opening of the new branch, and one lucky customer from the first day of trading will win on-pitch billboard advertising.

The opening of CPS Durham, which created four new jobs in the local area, means domestic installers now have access to an extensive range of plumbing and heating products, in addition to a bathroom showroom and dedicated City Heating Spares counter, the company says.

John Frost, managing director of CPS, said: “This is a momentous occasion for CPS and represents a huge achievement for colleagues based right across the UK.

“We’re thrilled to name Durham as our 300th branch and hope customers enjoy access to the new facility and the many services it offers.”
