Independent builders merchant RGB Building Supplies is set to launch its new Plumbing and Heating Centre at its Exmouth branch next week.
The merchant is marking the opening with a weeklong programme of events between Monday 7th April and Friday 11th April.
A number of industry companies will be at the new centre each day, including Alpha Boilers, Mira Showers, Makita, Pura Bathrooms and Rothenberger, demonstrating their products and giving advice to customers.
There will also be a daily draw to win a Kindle and the customer who makes the biggest single collect order between 1st and 30th April will win a 42″ TV.
Alby Cruse, branch manager at RGB Exmouth, said: “Everyone at the branch has worked hard to develop the new Plumbing and Heating Centre and we are excited about the launch week. It’s important for RGB to be able to offer expert knowledge and choice to all customers, whether they are in the trade or not, and we now have a dedicated plumbing and heating expert for customers to talk to.”
In addition, the branch has joined forces with Exeter Age UK supported group, Men in Sheds, to launch a Tool Amnesty on Monday 7th April.
RGB is asking people to donate any old or unused hand tools to the Tool Amnesty in return for a £5 voucher to spend in branch. All the donated tools will be given to Men in Sheds who will renovate and refurbish them so that tool kits can be sent to Africa, via the charity Tools for Self Reliance, to help locals learn a trade and support their local communities.
“The Tool Amnesty is also something we are very excited about and we look forward to welcoming the gentlemen from Men in Sheds along on Monday 7th April to launch the appeal. They are a fantastic group and we would like to encourage as many people in the local community as possible to come down during the week and donate unwanted hand tools,” said Cruse.
Tools can be donated to the Tool Amnesty between 7th and 11th April. All tools are gratefully received and do not specifically need to be used for plumbing and heating.
