About us

We do everything we can to inspire and delight customers.

Topps Tiles achieved record sales of £227m in 2022.

Our Net Promoter Score of 85% ranks us within the top 5 of UK retailers.

Our strategy is "Out specialising the Specialists".

Business areas

We're a business with a strong family heritage. Even with 300 stores, we've retained that family feel to this day. For 60 years we've out-specialised the specialists by selling only the very best quality on-trend products sourced from around the world. That, along with the world-class customer service offer is what makes us a top five retailer in the UK.

Tile samples



A Topps Tiles store wouldn't be a Topps Tiles store without passionate, helpful and knowledgeable people.

We work tirelessly to make sure that our stores are inspiring places to shop; that we're wowing homeowners and tradespeople with amazing choice and friendly, knowledgeable customer service. A customer can walk into a Topps Tiles store anywhere in the UK and know that they're talking to a specialist who takes pride in what they do and genuinely cares about helping them to make their tiling project go smoothly.


Support Office

Support Office

Finance, Marketing, Buying, Central Operations, HR, Property, Customer Service, IT – every function you'd expect from an ambitious, dynamic, multi-million pound retail business.

Everything we do we do for our customers. We're tile specialists, that's why they come to us. So it's our job to do absolutely everything in our power to inspire our customers, to bring their visions to life and make their project happen – whether that's by serving them directly or supporting someone who is.

We're always looking for exciting new ways to do what we do even better. In fact, putting new ideas into action is something we do very well. Colleagues in our head office developed new consultation desks for our stores and our unique online Tile Visualiser, which help our retail staff to better serve our customers.



How do we get our products into our stores and out to our customers? Especially when you consider that we have more than 300 stores across the UK, from Truro in Cornwall, to Inverness in Scotland, Belfast in Northern Ireland, to Llanelli in Wales. It's all down to the distribution heroes working in our two distribution centres in Leicester.

Here we pick the products, dispatch them and deliver them to our stores – and we deliver to every single Topps Tiles store twice a week. That's a lot of deliveries and a lot of logistics.

Topps Tiles in the community

Being a good neighbour, giving something back, making a positive difference to the communities we work in and serve. We believe in doing our bit – and then a bit more.

Alzheimer's Society

In December 2021, Topps Tiles colleagues collectively voted to move on from our bountiful 7 year partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support to give recognition to another charity and help aid another worthy cause.

Alzheimer’s Society are the UK’s leading dementia charity. They campaign for change, fund research to find better treatments, and support people living with dementia today.

There are currently 900,000 people in the UK living with dementia and this is set to rise to 1 million by 2025. Through our partnership we are aiming to raise £1 million for families affected by dementia across the UK.


In 2016, we partnered with Pennies, a fintech charity that enables micro-donations at the point of sale. We added Pennies’ ‘digital charity box’ to the tills in our stores and since 2021 to our online checkout too, allowing you to round up your purchases in-store and online and make a micro-donation. These donations help support our fundraising for Alzheimer’s Society which we began supporting in 2022.

If all the donations made in the first 3 months of 2020 alone (January 1st -March 24th) were turned into real pennies, stacked up they would reach higher than the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro (that’s 6.6km to be exact!)

Pennies has proven to be a great way to raise even more money for our chosen charity and we look forward to raising even more for Alzheimer’s Society in 2022 and beyond with a goal to raising £1 million for families affected by dementia in the UK.

The Topps Tiles Story

We're the market leader, yes, but we like a challenge and we've set ourselves some big goals; goals which show the size of our ambition and determination. And, vitally, the belief we have in every single one of our people. So when you join Topps Tiles you know that it's going to be quite a ride! We don't do standing still here – and nor will you.
