Brian Pollard (50) set up his thriving family business, Tattoo Everything Supplies, in his spare room at home. Within three months, the demand for his service grew exponentially and he knew he had to find alternative premises. Disappointed by the availability of quality business premises around the town, he jumped at the chance to rent a pristine trade counter in SureStore’s Bolton self storage facility and hasn’t looked back. Brian now provides tattoo supplies to the whole of the UK, Latvia, Bulgaria and Germany and parts of Europe and the US from his shop front in Orlando Street, just off Manchester Road.
As Brian explained: “I had a conversation with SureStore on the Thursday, collected the keys on the Friday and was open for business the following Monday, having worked all weekend with my family to transform the unit into a bespoke store to fulfil every tattoo artist’s wildest dreams! Having spent more hours in the car than I care to remember, the fact that I can now walk to work is incredibly important to me. We are close to the train station, bus stops and motorway network so customers can visit us whenever they want. There is free, secure car parking and if I am out and about, staff here will collect my parcels for me from various couriers and keep them safe for me until I get back.
As my business continues to expand, SureStore will expand with me with no hassle. What’s more I can budget for rent, rates, utilities and other ancillary business costs in just one monthly payment – with no surprises. The staff here are like family – one of the SureStore team even picked up a bottle of milk for me the other day because I was busy with clients and gasping for a cuppa. I can’t recommend SureStore enough and am delighted that I was fortunate enough to secure one of their eight trade counters here in Bolton.”
