"Since opening our first specialist tile centre in Manchester in 1963 we've been offering our customers high quality products at value for money prices sold by friendly, knowledgeable staff."
Matthew Williams CEO
For the last 50 years we have had a simple philosophy for business, providing an inspirational shopping experience and unrivalled product range authority, coupled with exceptional convenience.
It's this policy that's made Topps Tiles Britain's biggest tile specialist, with 365 stores nationwide and it underpins the Topps Tiles' strategy; to increase profitable market share through inspiring customers with amazing choice & exceptional levels of customer service.
Topps Tiles opened its first store in 1963 in Sale, Manchester and then continued to open stores across the North West and the Midlands. In 1990, Topps Tiles merged with Tile Kingdom and consequently expanded its presence into the South and London. Topps Tiles continued to grow following the merger and became a public limited company (PLC) in 1997.
Today, Topps Tiles operates from 365 UK based stores and is renowned for its large edge-of-town store formats. While there remain many parts of the country with the potential for Topps Tiles to expand its store network, availability of suitable sites can be a constraint on growth.
To address this, Topps Tiles developed a new smaller store format which offers a sub-set of the Topps Tiles range with very high levels of in-store service. The new format, branded Topps Tiles Boutique, launched in January 2014 and aims to bring the best of the Topps Tiles product range to the high street. The launch is a significant step in demonstrating Topps Tiles' commitment to making its market leading product range and exceptional levels of in-store expertise even more convenient to both home improvement enthusiasts and trade professionals.
Topps Tiles (UK) Ltd is the UK's leading tile specialist and the group has grown to incorporate 1,500 specialist experts and 365 stores nationwide, with more openings in the pipeline.
Topps Tiles' position as the UK's number one tile retailer is a tribute to the business philosophy and the approach developed by its founders. From the outset the founders recognised that the key to success was an outstanding range of tiles and associated products at prices to suit all pockets coupled with excellent and knowledgeable customer service.
