Darts champ opens merchant

Published:  20 September, 2012

NORFOLK: Five times world darts champ Eric Bristow will open new branch of Gibbs & Dandy on the site of the former Build Center on Bryggen Road, North Lynn Industrial Estate.

Mr Bristow, one of Gibbs & Dandy's official Team Builders ambassadors, will meet and greet local tradesmen, put on a darts masterclass, and also give people attending the chance to win prizes for their local sports teams and clubs.

The idea for Team Builders came about through the amount of Gibbs & Dandy customers involved with a sports organisation in one way or another, and branch manager Mick Farmer believes it will be hugely popular.

He said: "Gibbs & Dandy prides itself on being a team that is knowledgeable about the local area and provides a service tailored to the needs of our customers and the community, and one of things we are most asked about is support for teams, whether it be junior sides that tradesmen run or groups that they play in themselves.

"Team Builders is about giving customers the chance to meet a real sporting hero and also providing access to a raft of kits and equipment packages that we have in order to provide vital support to grassroots sport."
