Marie Curie - Fundraising

Hi again, thought I'd update everyone on a fantastic event which has just taken place in our store. Last Thursday - 7th November, we took part in a nationwide fundraising day for our nominated company charity - Marie Curie Cancer Care. Everyone had a fabulous time joining in with the "Blue and Yellow Day". As you can see from the pictures all our store team dressed for the occasion, blue and yellow flowers, blue and yellow cocktails, blue and yellow cakes and of course the flower costume was all part of the fun.

We raised over £1000 on the day as we donated 5% from each sale that day to Marie Curie - Our customers enjoyed not only the food and drinks but an extra 5% off that day too. We also had Smooth Radio broadcasting live from the store as their special celebrations reached their grand finale in our showroom.

Everyone involved felt it was one of the most enjoyable days where lots of money was raised for charity and our customers had lots of fun contributing. All of the team here at Forrest played a great part in making it a fabulous day with special mention to Sharon and Fiona who seemed to be organising absolutely everything and also Annette and Irene who made some great "Blue and Yellow Day" cocktails!

Until next time.

Forrest Furnishing is a family owned company established over 63 years ago in Glasgow. In this time we have evolved from a simple drapery business to a large furnishing store with an unrivalled choice of quality products for any home. As the Retail Sales Manager of the store I am fortunate that part of my role is to help plan our promotions.

This week we have been incredibly busy having photography completed and finalising materials for our latest offers to customers. From tomorrow we will have over 20 new packages and extra savings across our floors. With new leather upholstery from manufacturers such as Violino, Cellini and Rossini. We have an excellent range of contemporary and classic dining ranges on offer too, with savings of up to £400 off of our exciting packages - which also have up to 20 months interest free credit options available.

Further savings are on offer in our newly refurbished bedroom department, we have 8 exclusive packages on offer to allow any customer the chance to make a great saving on any style - with savings of up to £500 available it's well worth a look. In addition we have over 40 other ranges of bedroom furnishing in our department showcasing beatiful ranges from Alstons, JRG, Gola, Island Cliff, Neyt, Morris and G-Plan. In addition our bed department has every conceivable option from the top manufacturers such as Sealy, Silentnight, Myers, Millbrook, Relyon, Hypnos, Jaybe and Tempur.

Our excellent offers and quality service will hopefully deliver something for everyone. I look forward to seeing how our new packages and added value offers are recieved by the store's customers over the next month or so. Hopefully we will be very busy indeed.
