Pro Appreciation Event
March 20th thru the 26th Pro Appreciation Week happened at Home Depot Stores nationwide. Each day the event presented fantastic deals on tools and products for customers and contractors alike, on the 23rd Pros customers had opportunities to meet with vendors and ask question about existing products also check out new and innovative tools and materials , then asked to give feedback to the product representatives that were in the store.
The West Roxbury Ma, Home Depot extended out inventions to local landscapers inviting them to stop by the Pro Event and learn about Pro Extra Rewards, and the benefits of having a commercial account, and all the service directed toward overall landscaping projects.
Landscapers and Pros watched a video that was filmed at a local sod farm; Harmony Sod/ SodCo, provided an informative, and beautifully filmed audiovisual of the planting, the cultivating, the irrigation, the cutting, and the shipping of sod to The Home Depot. Direct shipment and the multi pallet rate of the farm fresh sod is now posted for landscapers to take note, and make plans for their season.
Ryobi and Echo battery powered tools were on display for a hands-on, try-out tools, for a perfect test run. The quiet start and operating of these specific tools allow many landscapers that deal with noise ordinances to work and get their jobs done with a non-emission, and in a quieter manner.
Contractor and Landscaper rates were also provide for 3 gal perennials and #7 Emerald Green Arborvitae; supplying landscaper with the options of installing “living fences” and mass plantings of perennials for their clients.
The Azek block and paver display was a showstopper! The lightweight, impenetrable, beautifully designed, patio paving system was amazing. “Being able to offer this to client’s as an alternative to traditional heavy stone, block, and pavers is great” one contractor told me, “I am considering installing these Azek pavers at my own house”…..now that was a great endorsement!
Many contractors also prized the new trim pieces, and railing system, from Azek, “these pieces are perfect for a detailed finished porch and deck system, beautiful product”, this contractor (one of West Roxbury’s HDs favorite people) wanted to take the whole sample table with him to have, to show his clients.
The Pro Event was great! Lots of loyal builders and contractors attended; also, lots of new faces, new companies and landscapers came by to check out the event. Breakfast and lunch were served along with snacks and refreshments all day long; raffle prizes were awarded at the end of the day, everyone had a wonderful time!
Appreciating our Pro Contractors and Landscapers is something that we do at the Home Depot every day, but having an event dedicated to our loyal professional customers is rewarding for everyone! Great conversation, knowledge and networking happened, and connections were made; The Home Depot community family is forever expanding, it starts in our aisles, at our registers, and at our Pro Desk.
The Home Depot welcomes our new Pro members, we would like thanks all of our loyal, pro customers and we look forward to assisting, servicing, and growing all our new and seasoned partnerships!
