Leading E-commerce Retailer Launches Barbecues Website

The UK's largest specialist online retailer of bathrooms, Plumbworld, has today launched a new e-commerce site selling barbecues.

The new website has been launched today and offers a huge range of gas, charcoal and patio barbecues.

BBQBarbecues will rely on its high level of service and low pricing strategy in order to sell products to the customers at the best possible prices and offer the best value for money. Amongst the huge product range currently listed on the BBQBarbecues website are top brands including Landmann and Bar-Be-Quick.

E-Commerce Manager, Scott Morris of Plumbworld announced:

"We have a market share in UK online bathroom retail of over 20%. A lot of which is down to our expertise in online marketing , highly automated internal systems and efficient logistics.

None of these areas of competitive advantage are related to the bathroom industry, so we decided to expand into another product area. Since the Plumbworld business was acquired by the Grafton Group in 2006, we now have access to a wide range of related products at market beating prices.

With the buying power of a multi billion Euro turnover business and the backing of the major brands behind us, we intend to make a serious assault on the UK BBQ's market"

The UK market for BBQ's is an expanding one, and with the UK expected for a heat wave over the next week, what better time to release this new website. We also found a links section on BBQBarbecues at the bottom of the homepage which links through to a whole host of tasty barbecue recipes.

IT Director, Richard Aldridge of Plumbworld stated:

"It has been quite a long process to get this website ready to go live, we have had to implement an entirely new page layout along with re-sizing imagery and designing a new admin panel. The BBQ products have had to be sourced and then loaded on the website and all manner of things checked and double checked along with the checkout and order import procedure"

With BBQBarbecues set to expand even more this year and offer yet more products on its website, you can be sure it will be a major player in selling Barbecues for the 2011 market.

Plumbworld was a pioneer of online trading in the plumbing products market, first trading online in 1999. The company now has an annual turnover in excess of 18 Million. The Company is based in Evesham in Worcestershire and employs over 50 people.
