Company's first Cape Cod showroom in Hyannis features accessible living bath product
Frank Webb’s Bath Center recently opened at 108 Breed Hill Road in Hyannis, Massachusetts, next to the Cape Cod Potato Chip Factory. This location creates the
30th showroom location for this growing chain and the second to showcase accessible living bath products.
“We’re pleased to continue our expansion,” said Jeff Pope, president of F.W. Webb Company, the parent corporation of Frank Webb’s Bath Centers. “In this economy, homeowners are looking for solid remodeling information to help them make the right choices. We offer a real alternative when planning a bath or kitchen renovation. Unlike big home improvement stores, we provide personal service and love when customers ask questions.
“Our showroom staff is not on commission, which is a real difference.” - Jeff Pope, president of F. W. Webb Company.
“Our showroom staff is not on commission, which is a real difference,” said Pope. “This removes any hidden agenda and allows our team to really listen to the customer and provide the best product guidance for their project.”
With a growing retirement population on Cape Cod, the new Frank Webb’s Bath Center showcases a variety of accessible living bath products including a roll-in shower, walk-in tub, comfort height toilets, shower seats, wheelchair-accessible vanity and more.
According to Pope, the company opened the first Accessible Living Bath Design Center in Massachusetts two years ago in Methuen and learned how important it is to educate homeowners about how to make bathroom design safer and more comfortable for an aging population.
“We aren’t located in a typical retail area,” says Julie Borjeson, manager of the new 5,000-square-foot Frank Webb’s Bath Center on Cape Cod. “So homeowners are surprised and pleased when they discover us.” The 30 showroom locations, which are adjacent to F.W. Webb Company’s wholesale distribution facilities throughout New England and Upstate New York, allow for storage of large inventories. The new Hyannis showroom is adjacent to The Cape Cod Potato Chip Factory complex, which is a well-known Hyannis location.
According to Borjeson, while the bathroom is often the smallest room in the home, it typically takes the most effort to plan, build or remodel…especially these days, when the product choices can seem overwhelming. Frank Webb’s Bath Center offers working displays that allow customers to actually experience how water will cascade from a faucet, how a steam shower looks and feels or how a whirlpool tub with air jets differs from one with water jets.
According to F.W. Webb management, Frank Webb’s Bath Centers has carefully considered what customers are looking for and designed this unique retail chain to address those needs.
“We welcome browsers,” said Borjeson, “but if you make an appointment, we can make your time in the showroom most productive.” She explained that the company’s website offers tips on how to start your project and what to bring as far as project measurements to make the most out of your first visit.
“Many times the product options available will be impacted by the space you are working in,” she continued. “When you are trying to replace fixtures, it is important to communicate what is now in place so that we can give you every option available to maximize your space and budget.”
The new Hyannis showroom is open Tuesday-Wednesday 9AM-5PM, Thursday 9AM-8PM, Friday 8:30AM-4:30PM and Saturday 9AM-2PM. The showroom is closed Sunday and Monday. For additional information on the new Frank Webb’s Bath Center in Hyannis, call 508-775-2130 or visit www.frankwebb.com.
