46 | SME News Midlands Enterprise Awards 2023 Best Kitchen Retailer 2023 - Derbyshire Committed to bring its customers’ creations to life, dedicated kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom retailer, Michael Arthur Ltd specialises in making the journey from initial concept through to completion as simple and easy as possible. We find out more about this family-run operation from Gail Stephenson as it gains notable recognition in the Midlands Enterprise Awards 2023. Whether you are yearning for a new kitchen, dreaming of a new bathroom, or desperate for more space in your bedroom, Michael Arthur Ltd can make it happen! Based in Derbyshire, Michael Arthur is a small independent kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom retailer with a big heart. Originally formed in 2015, the firm was taken over last year, as the owners retired, by Gail Stephenson and her friend who decided to join forces and go into business together. Specialising in the design, supply, and installation of kitchens and bathrooms, the small showroom stocks a wide variety of different products to suit all requirements and budgets. Michael Arthur understands that its customers are the heart of the business and will always go above and beyond to make to give the client exactly what they are looking for. From start to finish, all projects are meticulously managed, from initial concept design to final installation, and aftersales care too. “We always like to make sure that our customers get their dream kitchen or bathroom,” enthuses Gail. “We offer all our clients a bespoke service which allows for some wonderful creations in both the kitchen and bathroom sectors.” Being based in the small town of Matlock means that Michael Arthur benefits from the support of the local community, and being located in the midlands means it enjoys the benefits of good transport links and can form fantastic, strong partnerships with suppliers at both ends of the country. Michael Arthur’s ethos is based around family values and it likes to extend this to its dedicated staff members too, making them feel like part of the family. “We are flexible around working hours and like to make sure that our staff have a good work/ life balance,” Gail elaborates. “Our staff receive training on our systems and products to make sure that they can always advise and design the perfect space for our clients.” Recently, in recognition of its hard work, dedication, and commitment to both its clients and staff, Michael Athur was named in the prestigious Midlands Enterprise Awards as Best Kitchen Retailer 2023 – Derbyshire, a muchcoveted accolade of which Gail and the team have been understandably delighted to receive. Now, as the future beckons, things are looking positive for the small firm, with plans for expanding its services further afield with a new showroom in nearby Ashbourne, and the onboarding of new employees as the business enjoys a period of growth.
