Shop Local - Teepol in Bromley
"I have customers who go straight to the Teepol shelf to see if there's anything new", says Arvin Pindoria, the cheerful owner of STAKS DIY in Orpington High Street, in the London Borough of Bromley. "I have several who love Teepol's cleaning range, and I am stocking up again. I'm getting in top-ups of products including oven cleaner, citrus multi-surface cleaner, and glass and window cleaner, and I am buying cleaner sanitizer for the first time. Having a cleaning products factory just down the road came in useful at the start of the pandemic, when I was one of the few high street businesses here able to get in 50ml bottles of alcohol hand sanitizer when so many others couldn't."
Arvin, a firm believer in shopping locally, who does so himself, is joined by other local businesses as Teepol stockists (such as Pet Perfection in Green Street Green and Petts Wood) or users (such as Belmondo cafe in Green Street Green).
Arvin's STAKS DIY has the widest range of decorating and household maintenance and building goods and tools in the area, all in his shop at 275, High Street, just down from Orpington's War Memorial roundabout. Having been there for a long time now, he is also well-versed in advising locals about the use of their purchases, from the best glue for a job to the right paint. All part of the service.
As with many a local businesses, STAKS is a family affair. Arvin's father, Bhimji, is pictured above with a Teepol delivery.
