Pimp my Pad
Last year just after the summer madness of furnishing the homes of what seemed like half of the student population in the North West, we gave a thought to the less fortunate half who weren't so lucky to have lovely new furniture from ourselves so we decided to run a competition. The student with the grottiest, most disgusting excuse for a home would win the prize of a furniture pack of their choice to the value of £2000.00. We asked students to send in photos of their less than desirable digs and we had hundreds of entries from across the country - what an interesting selection of photos and some very close contenders. The lucky winner (although not so lucky with the squalid student accommodation they were slumming it in) not too surprisingly came from one of the UKs largest student cities and our home city of Manchester! After seeing the photo that was sent in we had to go check out the place for ourselves to see if it was really as bad as she described… and we can safely say Eibhlin Williams was truly deserving of the prize! We had a chat with her about the kind of furniture she would ideally like and gave her a tour around our showroom with a free reign on what she could take away with her! After looking through some of our brochures and some careful deliberating over the website we found a whole hoard of lovely furniture and accessories to make the not so nice place a lot more comfortable. Like any other valued customer we provided our excellent Delivered Assembled Installed service straight to the door and although Eibhlin insisted on helping out, our guys did all the heavy lifting and Eibhlin generously provided the cups tea. We caught up with Eibhlin a few weeks later after she had a bit of time to settle in with her new furniture package and took a few fun snaps while we were there! She said she had a great time choosing all of the furniture and was the first time she had ever won a competition – she delighted to have won the competition and was mega impressed with us as a company.
