Happy New Year!
Happy New Year from everyone at Saymor! Celebrating our 26th anniversary in December, it’s been quite a year for us and we want to say a big thank you to all our customers.
April saw a particularly memorable change for the Saymor team, with Lynn and Nick passing on the baton to their son, David. In his new role as Managing Director, David has followed in the footsteps of his parents and continued to grow the business from strength to strength. David said: ‘I’ve really enjoyed the first nine months of my new role taking the company forward with our great team building on the success of my parents. People are constantly surprised how affordable and competitive we are and I believe that we are in a very strong position for the future’.
Our staff are an integral part of the business and we are excited to move in to 2018 with our knowledgeable and hardworking team. So that you can get to know them all a bit better, this year we introduced our Staff Spotlight feature. Andy, Haydn and Leigh talk about life working at Saymor and their experiences of being part of a small, family run business. Find them on our blog!
Throughout the year, we’ve also had a bit of a revamp. We now have new signage gracing the front of our Ross store, as well as a brand-new delivery van! With new products and even better ranges arriving in stores this year, we want to keep up the current momentum and continue to provide our customers with high quality products and fantastic customer service.
One of our most popular products of 2017 was the 4’6 Memory Flex Mattress Divan and Headboard set which is currently on offer in our Sale for half price, Only £399.95! Great value for money!
This year, we will be making some changes in store by updating the interiors of both of our shops. This will include a fresh lick of paint and new signage throughout. We’ll also be giving our website a makeover with new products and ranges.
Continuing our involvement with the local community, we will be sponsoring the Ross-on-Wye junior football team’s shirts this year. Our employee, Haydn, has been a coach for the team for many years and we were keen to support the development of a local club. Stay tuned for photos!
In June, DIYSOS came to Avening, near Stroud. The team were working on the home of Ben Wernham, who was left paralysed from the neck down following a swimming pool accident when on holiday with his family. His house needed adapting so that he can move home from hospital and live safely with his partner, daughter and step daughter. When we heard about the build, all the Saymor staff were keen to support Ben and his family. We therefore decided to donate three beds for the house. This included we have a 5ft divan bed with a pocket sprung memory foam mattress and two two single divan bed for the girls. We were honoured to be involved in such a wonderful project and wish Ben and his family all the best for the future.
We’re also hoping to have a new Saymor mascot arriving in spring…in the form of a boxer puppy! Follow our Instagram page for updates.
With lots of exciting developments to come, we can’t wait to share it all with you!
Wishing all our lovely customers a healthy and happy 2018.
