Laker Builders Merchant has launched their new and improved Manor Royal store.
Following the acquisition of an addition unit at the Crawley branch, the team at Laker, led by MD, Steve Robinson and Founder, Ady Laker, have created a new spacious and brightly lit shop, offering a more welcome atmosphere.
Steve Robinson says;
“This new shop allows Laker to be much more retail friendly, whilst still giving our core Trade Customers the excellent service they expect from us.”
The team have ensured that it is stocked with brands that builders and DIYers know and love. The larger unit the shop sits within, is run as a forklift free zone to prioritise on customer safety.
In addition, Laker has provided improved customer access and parking for up to 12 customers, whilst completely modernising the whole branch, in line with their green ethos. This meant the shop was properly insulated, LED lighting and air source heat pumps using eco-friendly R32 gas installed in the branch.
The launch created a bit of a buzz with Crawley MP, Henry Smith, officially opening the shop by cutting the ribbon in front of their new on-street entrance on Rutherford Way in Manor Royal.
A day of fun was created with games and challenges for customers, friends, and attendees to win prizes, all to support Laker’s 2022 nominated charity, Men’s Shed, who focus on reducing isolation in men.
Household name suppliers came out in droves to support Laker on the day, including Bostik, Mannok, Crown, OX Tools, NoMorePly, TIMCO, XL Joinery, Stanley, Irwin, Cure It, Reisser and Werner and were incredibly generous, donating prizes and giving extra discounts, donating working platforms, cement, blue tooth speakers, Amazon vouchers, toolboxes, screwdrivers and even a bottle of champagne! All to support a fantastic cause.
In celebration of the new modern shop, Laker is offering up to 20% discount with all new trade accounts for the next 2 weeks.
