It is surprising how many people in the North West are now bringing a range CHINESE & JAPANESE items into our salesrooms, many having been inherited from older relatives who were around in the first half of the Twentieth Century, when ceramics and collectables from the Far East were so very popular and now, over the years have significantly increased in value.

How you can save thousands on your window repairs

WE REPAIR AND REPLACE

It’s stressful when things break or go wrong. Especially when it seems the only solution comes at great expense. Unexpected bills hit households hard at a time when every penny counts, and means thousands of homeowners put off fixing their windows or doors for fear of the costs involved.

Steamed-Up Windows Broken Hinges Handles & Locks

But with national window, door and conservatory repair specialists, WindowGeeks, local home owners have access to a real money-saving option. One that will reduce what could be an alarming bill in the thousands to a fair one in the low hundreds – or even lower than that. In fact, the average single repair or replacement undertaken by WindowGeeks is less than £65.

OUR GLASS COMES WITH A 10 YEAR GUARANTEEE

“Lots of people have problems with their windows, “They get steamed up and won’t clear, or the locks stick and the handles get loose. What most people don’t realise, though, is that all of that can be fixed quickly and without spending a fortune. “There are quite a few traditional window companies that won’t repair though, as they’re not really interested in the smaller jobs. And that’s what’s so great about WindowGeeks. We offer the most cost-effective solution, which makes it a very easy decision for our customers. There’s no pressure sales from us because there’s no viable alternative. Unless you want to spend 10, 20 or even 100 times more on replacing all your windows !” While the cost savings might be the biggest draw,there’s another reason customers should choose WindowGeeks,“It’s all about honesty and trust”. “There’s an integrity to what WindowGeeks does and that’s very important to us. We tell the truth, we only charge for what needs doing, we honour our promises and we help people everyday. That might sound corny, but you can run a successful business and be ethical at the same time.”

SAMPLE PRICE LIST (including VAT & fitting) Steamed Up Windows from £30 Replacement handles from £35 Replacement hinges from £55 Replacement locking system from £60 Anti-bumb/anti-snap Security locks from £69

• A.D.A.M Appeal will now receive a year’s worth of fundraising and awareness support from the store’s colleagues and customers • Customers were able to vote for their favourite charity to be considered • Fifth year of Local Charity partner initiative • Colleagues now planning fundraising activities over the next few months Sainsbury’s Garstang today announced that A.D.A.M Appeal will receive a year’s worth of fundraising and awareness support. The A.D.A.M raises fund to provide defibrillators to schools, sport clubs and the community and also awareness of how heart attacks can effect not only the old, but also the young.

The scheme, which began in 2009, has raised more than £5 million to support local communities in the last four years. The Sainsbury’s store, situated in Garstang has had great success in supporting previous local charities and last year raised £1,004 for The Legacy Rainbow House. The charity will be using the money to keep helping children with brain injuries. Sainsbury’s Garstang Store Manager said: “We’ve had a great response from our customers and we’re delighted to have chosen a charity which many of our customers and colleagues can associate with. We will now be working closely with the charity to ensure they really benefit from the Local Charity partnership”.
