Angling Direct Slough - Open Day Saturday 28th October 2017

“An awesome day enjoyed by customers and staff alike!” This welcome comment summed up the opening of the new Angling Direct Slough store on Saturday 28th October 2017. The day started with a queue of some 200 people who waited for the ribbon to be cut by two inspiring young anglers, Jamie and Jake (with a little help from their parents), which formally marked the opening of the store to the public.

The store was busy all day and special guest Dave Levy from RidgeMonkey revealed his secrets of rig tying at the store’s rig clinic. He gave us a sneak peek at the soon-to-be-launched new RM-Tec terminal tackle range. Pete Hudd and Nigel Sharp from Urban Baits were also on hand to provide customers with a bait masterclass.

The first 200 customers helped themselves to an awesome free goodie bag, which included products from Mainline, Korda, Advanta, and the first packets of exclusive RM Tec Hooks which were not on sale to the public at the time. Thanks are due to all those who contributed to the goodie bags – the customers loved them! There was also an offer of 10% off all marked items to celebrate the launch of a brand-new Angling Direct store.

Lucky George Shepard was the shop’s 100th customer on the day and he was presented with a £100 AD gift voucher as a prize.
