A big thank you to staff from The Independent Builders Merchants Group

shaking hands

All 750 employees at The Independent Builders Merchants Group’s (IBMG) 39 branches will get the afternoon off on 25th June. This is to give employees a well-earned extended weekend break on the first weekend following lockdown easing. As a further show of appreciation, all employees will also receive vouchers so they can enjoy dinner compliments of the business that night.

The IBMG includes Parker Building Supplies, Chandlers Building and Roofing Supplies, Stamco Timber and Fairalls Builder’s Merchant. MD Allun Pittingale said that all branches had remained open throughout the pandemic with staff working relentlessly to serve the entire building trade, often in challenging circumstances.

Allun said: “What better way to show we care than to give everyone some extra time to spend with friends and families once the lockdown restrictions are all finally (and hopefully) lifted in June.”

All customers are being informed of the unprecedented closing of the business for the afternoon too.
