How Do We Work?
We Import, We stock and We sell Direct
We import most of the tiles that we display in our showroom in Pompano Beach. However, unlike wholesale tile companies that sell their products through tile stores, we sell directly to our customers. Since we don’t have to serve hundreds of tile stores, our retail prices are lower than distributors’ wholesale tile prices.
o Tile Stores work?
9 out of 10, a tile store is a company that displays tile samples from wholesale companies (distributor). Everything in the store is the samples of what the distributor import and stock in their warehouses. When you like a sample, tile store orders it from the distributor for you.
Suppliers give away hundreds of samples to thousands of stores. That’s a giant overhead there.
Since the supplier can only sell through tile stores, they have to give away as many samples as they can, to as many stores as they can to maximize their product exposure. Being present in every single store may seem like a good thing. However, it mandates bulky inventories that generate significant turnarounds. Besides, all those stores need to be given a sales rep and customer service. All ads up to the cost prior to your business with the tile store.
Only a few people would buy a porcelain tile with the marble look or with the wood look if the porcelain version were more expensive than the original material. Since the distribution operation generates substantial overhead costs, we cannot expect mainstream distributors to bring the best ones. Their tiles are okay.
Us, on the other hand, we import from the most reputable factories. TAU is Spain’s most expensive manufacturer that can offer up to 15 different faces on marble and concrete look tiles, up to 45 faces on the wood look tiles, whereas most manufacturer can offer between 6 to 8 faces. ITT is famous for its stunning designs, Mirage, Gardenia Orkidea
In an industry where there are so many manufacturers from so many countries, one can never have it all. Therefore, to offer a larger selection, we also display some tiles that we don’t import. However, since we know the cost of everything in every country, we only display tiles from companies that we have ties with and we know their products are of good quality, their prices are reasonable.
If you’re shopping for a tile that you’ve already have seen in another store, most likely we don’t have it.
If you’re shopping for tile, you have probably noticed that most tile stores display the same products. Well, We don’t. We display some unique and rare tiles. Our brands, on the other hand, are too expensive for wholesale companies. It would also be hard to find our tiles in other stores.
