To celebrate recent improvements to its Colchester branch, Ridgeons is holding a one-day trade event on Monday 12 May 2014.

The free event will bring together a host of top industry suppliers, along with special offers, a prize draw and a free bacon roll and coffee for customers before 10am.

Suppliers such as Dulux Trade, Paslode, Stonemarket, Dickies, Purdy, Richard Burbidge, Keylite Roof Windows and Makita will be at the branch from 7am until 5pm, to give customers the opportunity to take part in hands-on demonstrations. The day will also feature special deals and exclusive offers, as well as the opportunity to enter a prize draw to win a Samsung Galaxy tablet 3 (7”) and a Dulux cuddly toy.

Over the last few months the branch has undergone significant enhancements, including the shop floor doubling in size to provide customers with a much larger range of stock. The core stock range has also been realigned and refreshed.

Colchester branch manager Phil Yearling said: “The branch has a completely new feel to it and I would urge customers to take advantage of our trade day and pop along to see how much it has changed. We were due a refresh and we are now able to offer our customers a greater range of products and a much more efficient service, which makes for better business for them and us.”
