‘Atkins Live’, our annual open weekend at our Cork outlet is on from Friday 5th to Sunday 7th April. As before, the appeal for many will be the discount, which is equivalent to the 23% VAT amount, off everything in the Farm Shop.
There will be a number of Subject Matter Experts visiting us to advise about products, demonstrate and answer any questions visitors might have about their products. The companies which will be represented will include Sparex, Electroweld, Reliance, Sadu, King Tony, Farmhand, McHugh, Westaro, Pel and Central Bearings. It will be a great opportunity to meet experts in their respective fields to advise you about tools, products and usage.
In Gardenworld there are a number of offers:
- 23% VAT amount off all stock except Weber BBQs and Vitavia Greenhouses in Gardenworld on Friday, Saturday and Sunday
- 10% off all Greenhouses ordered over these 3 days – excludes Free base offer currently available
- 10% off all Weber BBQ’s plus a Free cover with any BBQ bought over these 3 days
In addition there will be a Mo-Bacter Representative in-store over the Saturday and Sunday offering Lawn advice and Free samples etc. and a Weber Expert Representative in-store on the Saturday offering BBQ advice - even for those of us who don't need advice about our barbecuing. On Friday the Soil Renew Representative and the Liquid Seaweed/Fertiliser representative will both be in the shop giving valuable gardening advice.
In the Lawnmower shop 10% is off the entire Husqvarna, Honda and Echo ranges. Kubota's cash back offer is also doubled for the weekend - there is potentially €700 cash back on selected products.
In the Machinery yard the headline deal this year is 0% Finance on many used machinery items. There are also special sale items such as Teejet Matrix 430 guidance system for just €1,000.
Meanwhile for others, the draw will be the childrens' entertainment and the hospitality in the yard. One of the new attractions this year will be a hammer strike carnival game - €100 voucher to the winner! The Irish Guide Dogs will be in attendance again this year.
After the dust settles in Cork the sale prices continue the following week from Monday 8th through to Saturday 13th at our Bandon and Fermoy outlets. A second opportunity to avail of a once a year discount!
Please note: all goods are still invoiced including VAT, it’s just the discount is equal to amount of VAT @ 23% included in the normal price. If an item sells for €123 (inc. VAT of €23) normally it is sold for €100 (inc. VAT of €18.70) during the sale.
