We have paint stores, tile stores … and now, a bathtub store called … what else … Tubz. It will stock about 200 bathtubs. Kevin Galt and Daniel Grace, each with two decades of experience selling bathtubs, are opening the store soon. They’ve licensed the Tubz name from a Fremont business. 

Tubs start at $800 … but $15,000 will get one with a TV, stereo and steam. They say buyers spending more than $3,000 on a tub want to sit in it first, thus the large inventory. Tubz will sell wholesale to the construction industry … but will be open daily to consumers as well. The owners chose a location in Interstate Business Park, amid other building supply and home improvement stores.
