Tell us about the team at Tile Giant Southport
The team at Southport is made of up of 3 members of staff with over 15 years' experience in the tiling industry. Working alongside me are my sidekicks Paul T and Paul T.
What do you like most about living in Southport?
Southport is a lovely seaside town with lots of things always going on. We have some of the best golf courses around, hosting the Open and this year is the UK Masters. We also host the Southport Air Show, Flower Show and The British Musical Firework Awards, so never a dull moment.
How can Tile Giant help customers find their perfect tile?
Our aim here in Southport is to help be a part of the design process and give every customer the dream bathroom or kitchen that they have always wanted at an affordable price. We have over 15 inspirational kitchens and a vast array of bathroom tile settings to help visualise the end design.
Southport is our most bespoke store, being part of a Wickes Kitchen and Bathroom Showroom. That being said, it's the only place you can get a whole room design from start to finish. We can place tiles around the showroom to show you the end design in its real form.
Catering for both retail and trade, the team at Tile Giant Southport prides itself on our product knowledge, first class customer service and we won't stop until you are happy. We also have a relaxed approach, meaning we are there to help when you want and not harass you from the moment you enter the store.
What tiles are proving popular at the moment?
We have lots of new styles around at the moment and in the past month have updated 12 new in-store displays with a further 6 to be done in May, so lots to consider and there's a tile for every occasion and every budget.
For the past 2 years our most popular tile has been the Palewood range and has a very impactful 3D feature which gives a great finish without an extra cost.
What makes Tile Giant stand out over other retailers?
Tile Giant has a very family orientated working ethic and we work as a team, not just as individuals. Our aim is to look after every customer who walks through our doors, whilst having fun and enjoying being at work.

What people are saying about Tile Giant Southport:
D Evans: As a bathroom installer, one of the best tile shops in Southport for product knowledge and customer service. Nothing too much trouble.
B Hollings-Tennant: What an amazing service. I wanted a feature wall behind my table and a split face tile was recommended. I'm over the moon with how it looks and every guest at my house is wowed by the tiles. From order to receiving the tiles it only took 3 days. I couldn't recommend Tile Giant and the staff more highly. I will be using them again for any future purchases.
