C&M DIY Centre in Andover have been placed second in the window display category in Toolbank’s Festive 2014 XMS promotion display competition.
Stuart Prangley, the store owner, said “In the run up to Christmas we took part in the REAL DEALS FOR YOU Christmas promotion, sending out 8,000 leaflets to the local area. Part of the promotion, run by our wholesaler TOOLBANK, was a window display competition, open to participants of the promotion nationwide and for the first time we decided to enter.”
“We were delighted to find out that we had come 2nd, it was a lovely Christmas surprise. My staff members Martin and Sally worked hard to create a fun window showcasing all the great products that were available during the promotion.”
“We had a fantastic customer response to the leaflets that we sent out and the promotion was a great success. I would like to take the opportunity to thank our customers for continuing to support us” he added.
There were over 200 entries for this year’s competition, in which Toolbank customers taking part in the promotion were required to submit photographs of the Christmas displays they had built around the promoted products, signage and POS material.
The entries were judged by a panel consisting of British Hardware Federation /British Independent Retailers Association managing director Alan Hawkins, National Merchant Buying Society managing director Chris Hayward, Toolbank group sales director Simon Bicknell, and former DIY Week and Builders Merchants Journal publisher Colin Petty.
