After the “beast from the east” covered us in a blanket of snow, it’s hard to believe that spring is just around the corner. As the double bank holiday approaches, households all over the country will be starting the annual dust detox (or the spring clean, as it’s better known) and taking their first tentative steps back into the garden.
As a shop owner, now is the perfect time for a stock check. Getting your orders in with time to spare means you won’t be missing out and ensures that you’re ready to cope with the demand, given that Easter weekend is now almost as synonymous with D.I.Y as it is with hot cross buns and chocolate eggs. Stock your shelves with all the cleaning equipment you could shake a feather duster at, including brooms, brush ware, mops and cloths, paint brushes and rollers, as well as garden tools.
Whilst January sees everyone eager to make changes in their life over the year ahead, spring is the time people look ahead and take real action, with the garden often being the focus of attention. A little challenging work whilst there is still a nip in the air is fuelled by the promise of creating a haven of relaxation for the summer months.
Our expansive selection of garden tools, ranging from spades and trowels to yard brooms and rakes, makes all horticultural tasks a breeze whether you have green fingers or not.
Add to that our extensive range of paint brushes, decorators’ tools and sundries, plus a huge collection of janitorial supplies, and it’s easy to see that we have all your customers’ needs covered for the big spring holiday.
