    Bit of a difference between "most building people" generally and "most builders in the (NE) that use us".

    Not trying to catch you out, just worth double checking what exactly you are saying when you make unsubstantiated statements, some know it all like me will challenge you.

    That all anyone does on here is criticise everything and everyone? Bit **** if thats so and i didnt say 7m turnover wise ass :) Also if you have visited the website it says new website LAUNCHING SOON it a crime to get updates now and then is it? I think what you see is a holding page.

    In conclusion - think hard about opening a retail outlet and good luck if you do!

    At the end of the day everybody is entitled to give their thoughts on how they think you should run a business. whether everyone agrees or not is by the by, when i started this thread i wasnt sure id get any decent advise but it has been good to get different ideas.

    I have had another job come in today which makes 6 kitchens and 2 bathrooms. So it has come to the crunch! i will leave my job at the end of the month and go for it, i don't think there is ever a right time.

    I think i would like to have a showroom one day but probably when i decide to come off the tools.

    Is this the same D&S Kitchens that did my mates kitchen in Newcastle a few months ago? Where bout are your other showrooms in Benton & Washington, can you post the addresses? Me and my missus we're guna get in touch with the guy who owns the company, (Steve isnt it?) see what he could do for us.

    Goodluck, so many people talk about going for it yet the time is never quite right. Never a good time just got to go for it at some point.
