I am the Outdoor Leisure Manager, helping customers with furniture, barbecues, parasols, and everything in-between.
I love the variety – every day there’s something new, so there’s no time to stand around and get bored!
I first joined in 2004, and despite a few short breaks to pursue other interests I’ve never quite been able to stay away!
I’m not sure if such a thing exists! At the moment, we have lots of new stock coming in so I’m spending a lot of time lifting and shifting, but in warmer weather I’ll be on the shop floor helping customers to find the perfect furniture and BBQ products for their gardens.
Being surrounded by furniture in the Outdoor Leisure area is definitely my favourite – it’s a bit like being someone who loves plants standing in a beautiful flower garden!
I’d like every customer to see our outdoor displays to inspire them to look in their own gardens more! A garden can be an extension of your living space, it can be transformed into a dining area, an entertaining area or a place of peace and tranquillity. We’re here to help make that happen!
If I’m loading pots or compost into cars for customers, they’ll often ask if I’ll come home with them to take it out at the other end!
I really enjoy big team evenings we have before the Christmas Department opens, when staff from all areas of the business get involved in putting together our amazing Christmas displays. It’s a lot of work but a lot of fun and the end results are spectacular!
It’s hard to chose just one, there are so many good things! There’s a gas BBQ, the Weber Spirit E320, that I recommend to anyone who enjoys cooking outdoors. The style and finish on the Barlow Tyrie ‘Titan’ set is impressive, but my absolute furniture favourite this season is the Hartman ‘Hartford’ curved casual dining set.
