War is horrid, unless you mean a Battle Beyond the Stars! Sorry wrong film. Believe it or believe it not today is Star Wars day! To celebrate we’re doing a special blog here so have a read! May the Fourth be with you!
At The Pole Company we have hired some new staff to help out across the business on this special day. As we have mentioned before, we offer a fitting service for our shop customers. Today we’ve got a very familiar Mandalorian chap helping us out with fitting duties. We asked him for a sound bite and his response was as follows…
‘I always get my man.‘
What Mr Fett meant to say was we offer a free expert measuring and onsite consultancy service to make sure that you are confident with what you’re buying and that every detail is correct particularly to avoid issues with some of our custom made products. Unfortunately due to limitations we can only arrange measures and fittings via the shop but please contact us for more details. We will also go further a field too; please see our bay window fitting in Cheyne walk London in both the Gallery and original blog item.
Our new shop assistant is an eccentric character to say the least. He’s referred to himself as the Admiral more than once, although he seems more like a Goldfish to me. He has also repeatedly answered the phone with ‘IT’S A TRAP!‘. Despite his enthusiasm and unwavering allegiance to the rebels (which he seems to mention every 5 minutes or so), we would like to highlight our shop is manned 9-5 Monday to Saturday where you can find a selection of products on display or in our many catalogues including curtain poles, blinds, curtain accessories, awnings and shutters. We have several expert interior designers with 20 years experience behind them and plenty of useful knowledge to help you with any queries or purchase you wish to make.
The website is our second shop if you like. We have a dedicated IT department who are constantly updating our site and Facebook and Twitter groups. Again in celebration of today we have hired a couple of familiar faces to help the IT team. These guys refused to wear our purple shirt and instead showed up dressed in all black. They also seem to have the same first name which was odd, ‘Darth‘, must be modern. Here’s what they had to say.
‘We bring together the Dark side of the force to crush our enemies and reign supreme over the web!‘
‘Shut up Vader, everyone knows it is I who will drive this site to victory!‘
‘You?! You’re half the man you used to be Maul!‘
Unfortunately they aren’t getting along today at all. The old hooded man who lent them to us warned they might be a little angsty at first. The website however is fully operational. We sell hundreds of products online at competitive prices. Deliveries of purchases £75 and over are free! We also offer sales on selected lines from time to time so stay tuned for news on the next Sales event soon! Please have a browse through our site we’ve made it even easier to do so with our new menu bar (see previous blog for details) or our gallery section which has many albums of jobs we’ve completed or products we are highlighting!
So That is Star wars Day at The Pole Company 2012. We have experimented with our hiring today and our advice for other shops celebrating/acknowledging this special day say is never hire fictional characters to help run your business. Bring on 5pm!
Thanks for reading!
‘ITS A TRAP!‘
Oh someone brought Sushi in so we had to move Ackbar upstairs to IT.
