Makeover for Sowton electrical specialist Posted August 17, 2016 07:39 AM by Luke Green    

The Sowton branch of Devondale Electrical has recently been given a makeover, with new counters, displays and information screens.

The refurbishment is the latest stage in Devondale’s company-wide rebranding initiative.

Branch Manager Mark Richards said: “Everyone, including our customers, is pleased with the finished result; the new look is brighter and fresher.”

Mark joined Devondale a year ago after working for a variety of independent electrical businesses throughout his career, and says he is enjoying the new challenge.

“At this branch, most of the customers that come through the door are sole traders working on local projects, and we get to know them well and can offer expert advice. We also sell directly to members of the public – we’re as happy to sell a single plug as a set of LED panel lights!”

The Sowton branch has three permanent members of staff, and a dedicated delivery van that delivers supplies to customers on site. Devondale offers a daily delivery for any order placed before 9.30am, and if an item is not in stock, inter-branch co-ordination means it can be delivered by 9am the following day.
