As part of its 175th anniversary celebrations, Covers Timber & Builders Merchants will be hosting a series of Anniversary Challenges & Demonstration Mornings at its depots starting with Southampton on Thursday 28th April from 7.30am to 1pm. The trade mornings will run until the autumn and will be open to all customers.
Covers’ suppliers, including Bradstone, British Gypsum, Millboard, Rockwool, Sika, Spax, Toolbank, Mendes Doors and Woodpecker Flooring will all be in attendance. They will provide demonstrations and offer visitors the chance take part in a range of anniversary challenges to win up to £175 worth of Love2shop gift cards.
Challenges will include Bradstone’s Test Your Memory, Rockwool’s Fill The Frame, British Gypsum’s Beat The Buzzer, Sika’s Test Your Strength, Spax’s Fastest Screwer, Millboard’s Spin The Wheel and Toolbank’s Scalextric.
All those taking part in the challenges will also have the chance to become one of Covers’ Challenge Champions. Those with the most points for each challenge at the end of the demonstration morning will be added to a league table. As the demonstration mornings continue at Covers’ depots across the year, other challenge winners will be added. The contestant who remains at the top of the board for each challenge after the last trade day of the year will become a Covers Challenge Champion. Prizes for being top of the league include a Cello Notepad, Apple Watch, Apple iPad, 50-inch 4K TV, a Bose speaker and a £250 Love2shop gift voucher.
