James Burrell welcomed the captain of Blyth Spartans A.F.C, Robbie Dale, and Vice-Chairman, Kevin Scott to officially open its renovated Blyth branch.
The independent merchant has completed a major £250,000 renovation of the branch, allowing the branch to provide a wider product range, stock specialist products, provide better facilities and upgrade the fleet – offering a better service to its South East Northumberland and North Tyneside customers.
To showcase the upgraded facilities, they hosted an opening day offering exclusive supplier deals, prize draws and major discounts to its customers. The opening day was attended by a host of customers, old and new, and suppliers such as Cromar Building Products, Stonemarket and BMI Icopal.
Dale said: ‘It’s great to get out and about and support local businesses that are improving the facilities in Blyth. It’s also a perfect opportunity for us to meet members of the local community and thank them for their amazing support – and seeing the green and white colours is an added extra!’
Kevin Dawson, Regional Sales Manager at James Burrell, added: “We’re delighted that the major renovation in our Blyth site is complete and that so many customers came along on the opening day.
“We are going to run exclusive deals and events for our Blyth customers to continue the celebrations, so make sure you keep an eye out for the announcements on our social media. We would love both new and existing customers to come along, see the new site and take advantage of our opening offers.
It was an honour to welcome Robbie and Kevin to do the official ribbon cutting and to show them around the branch. We really appreciate them taking the time out of their schedule to come down and support us”.
