On Saturday 6 October, Scotland’s strongest fenestration company, Sidey opened the doors to its Edinburgh Showroom in the out-of-town shopping area near Edinburgh’s Ikea. It’s kitted out with 36 entrance doors as well as lots of different types of traditional and modern windows, all full sized and installed in home style settings.
With a VIP Preview the night before, invited guests, and the team at Sidey were able to enjoy the fabulous new space for the first time. In his welcome comments Steve Hardy, Joint Managing Director said: “The concept for the new showroom is to be different to any other in the UK. We recognise that the climate in building and renovating homes is different and this is our response. That’s why the new showroom is designed not just for the retail side of the business, but for our commercial customers too. It’s somewhere they can come to get inspiration for glazing and to look at the latest ideas in window and door design, to create warmer and more secure homes.
“The first day was very busy. Local radio station Forth 1 ran a competition for listeners. Almost 400 entered, and 20 finalists, along with their supporters descended on the showroom for the draw. Then Forth 1 presenters Boogie and Arlene revealed the winner. Nicola McIntosh, the winner of the top prize couldn’t believe her luck, saying she had never won anything before. It’s timely for her and her husband, as they are embarking on some major work for their home. She told us that she’s going to put the £2,500 prize towards either a porch or conservatory.
“The showroom is now open, but there are more products to add,” continued Steve. “We are already planning to add a glazed extension over the next few months. The Sidey Edinburgh showroom is open 7 days a week and we are looking forward to making good use of it for all our customers.”
