Snow and Ice

So we've been treated to a fair bit of snow and ice over the past week. Our store has managed to stay open right through pretty much keeping to its normal opening hours.

We did close early last Friday (18th January) though. The heavy snow fall the previous night meant a lot of people hadn't made it to work and our shop was very quiet so we made the unusual decision to close up shop at 14.00. One of our staff decided to take advantage of the early finish and build a snow bear with his sister!

We have good stocks of de-icer, paraffin and rock salt in our store on Talbot Road, Port Talbot so please call in if you need to stock up. We can also deliver should you require it.

Don't forget our online stores and continue to trade 24/7 in all weathers!!
