Sugar and Spice and All Things Nice as QD’s Wellingborough Store Celebrates its 1st Anniversary
There's a celebratory mood on Wellingborough high street as the town's QD Store prepares to mark its 1st anniversary since opening on a hot summer's day in June last year.
To celebrate a tremendously successful year of trading, QD is offering customers the chance to win this fabulous Milton patio set worth £48.99 by entering its birthday competition. Based upon sales of one of its most popular items, 1kg bags of Tate and Lyle sugar which are sold at just 66p per bag, customers are invited to guess the number of bags sold in-store over the past 12 months.
There's a prize in store as QD in Wellingborough celebrates its 1st anniversary. Customers are invited to guess the number of bags of sugar sold in-store over the past 12 months giving them the chance to win a patio set for summertime entertaining which includes a table, four chairs plus a parasol.
Store Manager, Chris Reeve, hit upon the idea of sugar because the total will come as a surprise to many. "We want to say a big thank you to customers who have shopped with us throughout our first 12 months of trading and have made this store such a success in the town. I'm sure that shoppers will enjoy taking part in the competition and discovering what a sweet tooth the population of Wellingborough obviously has!"
Customers are invited to post their estimate and contact details into the in-store post box; the winner will be presented with their prize at the store by Chris Reeve. The competition runs from Wednesday, 30th June, the day of the store's anniversary, until close of business on Sunday, 11th July.
Wellingborough was the third in a string of QD stores to open in 2009. The retail group, which also owns the Cherry Lane chain of garden centres, Lathams of Potter Heigham and the Buyright Superstore in Hadleigh, Suffolk, continues to go from strength to strength and has recently been listed among the top 75 retail businesses in the Eastern Daily Press Business Guide 2010.
