Supporting the Local Economy
Simply put, shopping locally helps support the local economy, creates local jobs and boosts local communities.
Local businesses are the backbone of the economy and you’d be surprised how far the money that you decide to spend on local businesses actually goes! A large percentage of it circulates back into the community in areas such as local pubs, restaurants and shops through our locally based team, which ensures the community continues to thrive. Wherever possible, we source all our materials and service providers locally as we believe this helps build a brighter future for the entire region. For example, we use local printers for our brochures, a local photographer for our case studies and we even source our worktops from a local business too!
Getting your kitchen design right for your individual space and specific needs is crucial to maximise the efficiency and enjoyment you get out of your kitchen. The perks of shopping at an independent store over the high street are plentiful and include an overall much more tailored experience.
Our designers will meet you face to face (This has been adapted due to COVID – read more in our latest COVID-19 update: COVID-19 Update 05/01/21) before assisting you in creating a design that is produced on your requirements and budget, not the designers. During the kitchen selection and installation stage, our designers will work with you in order to keep the level of complication to a minimum. We have recommended kitchen fitters that you can use, should you want to! Ready to start designing now? Click here to begin!
Helping the Environment
As featured in our blog, How Exeter Kitchen Store work to create sustainable kitchens, the team at EKS are always doing their best to make sure that they are contributing towards a sustainable future. By choosing locally, you can do your part too!
As EKS is located in the heart of Exeter, we are well within walking distance for a lot of local people, which avoids unnecessary driving and the reduction of air pollution and traffic. When it comes to delivery, our team of drivers will be travelling a much shorter distance to deliver you your kitchen, significantly reducing our carbon footprint. It’s a win-win situation!
High levels of quality
Just because we’re local doesn’t mean we don’t know a thing or two about quality! While you may associate higher quality with larger brands, this isn’t always the case.
