Three days of celebration for Howarth Timber

Published:  05 August, 2016

Customers at Howarth Timber and Building Supplies in Scunthorpe have been treated to three days of offers, competitions and giveaways at a celebration of the newly refurbished store.

The Warren Road store has been given a makeover and marked its re-launch by hosting three days of deals and events that were enjoyed by regular visitors and new customers alike. Howarth Timber staff dished out free breakfasts and gave customers a tour of the store's new layout.

DJs from Viking FM provided the entertainment and ran a special competition, giving customers the chance to compete to win £1000. Selected customers were invited to take part in a challenging game of balance and skill, with successful entrants then entered into the draw.

There were plenty of other chances to win too with lucky customers bagging themselves prizes including an iPad, Makita radio and a camera, while others took advantage of a range of special offers from Howarth Timber’s suppliers.

Neale Brewster, Howarth Timber’s marketing and product development manager, said: “Our Scunthorpe branch is leading the way for our 30 UK branches following the upgrade to the store's interior. We are delighted with the new look and feel of the store, and it was a pleasure to share it with our Scunthorpe customers across three brilliant days.”
