The COVID-19 lockdown has delivered a sales surge for Gelder Group’s online business ‘LoveDIY’ but amongst the thousands of tins of emulsion, 844 tins of shed & fence paint, 367 tins of doorstep paint and 402 hanging basket brackets however one item, above all others stands out, 52 ‘Gold Pans’!
LoveDIY Manager Martin Ward comments:
We started stocking gold pans as part of a manufacturing deal for tools, not expecting to sell many, if any at all. This all changed during lockdown when 52 where dispatched, mainly to customers from Wales.
Like many online businesses, LoveDIY has seen sales in various home improvement lines rocket during the COVID-19 pandemic but even with the gold price rising by over 50% since April a surge in Gold pans wasn’t predicted.
During the COVID-19 outbreak Gelder Group’s online business www.loveDIY.com has seen unprecedented demand for its decorating products, leading to staff erecting a large marquee to accommodate additional packers who can all work safely at packing stations located 2.5m apart.
On the temporary edition, LoveDIY’s Martin Ward comments:
Gelder Group is known for its ‘can do’ attitude, the team at LoveDIY is no different. We have plenty of decorating stock, packing it all safely was the issue, which is now resolved.
If your loved one is driving you up the wall, visit www.lovediy.com and get him/her to paint it!
