Independent Welsh builders merchant Robert Price welcomed over 500 visitors and customers to its 2014 Robert Price Building Bonanza, hosted this year at its Newport Branch.
The Bonanza showcased the Newport branch, with its covered drive-thru warehouse, self-service shop floor, extensive landscaping and patio display area and newly extended yard.
90 suppliers and manufacturers from every product group took part in the exhibition, showing the latest products on the market with a wide variety of informative practical demonstrations and special offers.
The Newport staff gave guided tours of the branch and the comprehensive range of products and services on offer, including the latest addition of a full range of Civils products.
Abergavenny Agricultural Supplies, the latest addition to the Robert Price Group – was also in attendance with a range of gates, fencing and land drainage products on display.
Branch manager Chris Pasch-Jones said: “This year’s Bonanza was both enjoyable and hugely beneficial for everyone who attended. We were delighted with the support from both suppliers and customers. There was a real buzz with so much to see and do. Customers were able to pick up a wealth of advice and product support while making the most of the tempting special offers available on the day.
“The Bonanza also gave new customers a chance to see our fantastic branch. We are in a very accessible location here in Newport with dual carriageway links to the M4 in both directions and ample parking. It was a brilliant opportunity to showcase the scope and range of what Robert Price has to offer.”
Will Godfrey, Robert Price managing director, said: “I was delighted to receive such positive feedback from our suppliers and customers and pleased that our Bonanza has become such a popular annual event. It will be hard to improve on this year’s event, but anything is possible, watch this space.”
