Eastbourne Marquis Spas dealer Neptune Spas has officially opened its new enlarged and redesigned showroom and display area at the town’s Hilliers Garden Centre.

Costing £20,000 to complete, together with new stock, the new showroom has doubled in size compared with the original, enabling up to ten hot tubs to be displayed. This includes a range of Marquis Spas supplied by exclusive UK distributor Golden Coast.

Neptune Spas managing director Andy Russell says the new display area incorporates several working models, one of which is within a ‘wet test’ log cabin where potential customers can ‘try before they buy’.

The garden centre has just undergone a £3 million refurbishment, and is the only one of its type in Eastbourne.

Andy comments: “This has become Hilliers’ flagship of the 12 sites they operate, and there are real signs of a return of interest in our market. Our position means we benefit from the increased footfall through the garden centre, with many visitors coming to our site. We have already turned several impulse enquiries into confirmed sales.”

He adds: “The new site allows us to better display the full range of products we stock. Our main products are hot tubs, but we also sell saunas, log cabins, garden buildings and greenhouses, as well as all the associated accessories required for outdoor living.”
