Incredibly, it’s been ten years since Carpet Giant came to Yate. Those years have flown by! We’ve had a fantastic time of it and wanted to celebrate the occasion with everyone that’s helped us over that time and enabled us to reach the landmark.
To commemorate our decennial year, on the 6th and 7th of September, we decided to hold an open weekend, where we offered some great discounts on top of competition prizes and some family friendly entertainment.
In the run up to the event we launched a competition, which would see the lucky winner get their whole house carpeted for free. We had more than eight hundred entrants by the time the draw came around, as people recognised that this kind of prize doesn’t come along often!
The winner was drawn from a tombola on the Sunday, which also saw several others claiming prizes including a £250 discount, a £100 discount, free underlay, free fitting and numerous others. All of the winners have been notified by email and we look forward to fulfilling their orders in due course.
In addition to the competition draw we also laid on a popcorn machine, cup cakes and bucks fizz for those in attendance, with the popcorn in particular proving popular with the younger attendees.
On the Saturday of the weekend, the Mayor of Yate was in attendance wearing his full ceremonial robes. To acknowledge our ten-year achievement and to signify our on-going intent, we’ve recently undergone a complete rebrand, part of which included the development of a new website. The open weekend was the official launch of the Carpet Giant rebrand, so the Mayor kindly cut a ribbon to signify its official unveiling and gave a short speech, praising Carpet Giant’s success and its contribution to the wider community.
There were lots of people at the store across both days, which saw Saturday become our busiest ever trading day, with Sunday not far behind.
It’s safe to say then that the event was a resounding success. We’d like to thank everybody that came along and also like to thank everyone that’s helped support Carpet Giant over the past ten years. Here’s to the next ten!
