It's a great honour to reach our 25th birthday and lovely to treat our customers, says md.
Godfrey DIY celebrated its 25th birthday on April 12.
The well-known Norfolk retailer hosted a birthday party at its Norwich store on Riverside Road to thank its customers for a quarter of a century of support.
Customers enjoyed birthday cake and bubbly with the Godrey family as well as interior designer and television presenter Linda Barker, who was on hand to answer questions on home interior problems and offer one-to-one style advice.
Godfrey DIY has always been a family-run business and three generations were present on the day to celebrate the company's latest landmark.
Barry Godfrey, managing director of Godfrey DIY, said: "It's a great honour to reach our 25th birthday and lovely to be able to treat our customers to a celebration to say thank you.
"Our customers are very loyal and in the face of increased competition from the multiples, they continue to shop at Godfrey, pleased with the style at affordable prices which we offer."
Bill Godfrey, Barry's father, said: "Throughout the past 25 years, the competitive intensity of our sector has constantly been increasing, and we have always risen to that challenge.
"Our customers have seen our business change and adapt over those years, but have also seen us stay focused on offering great value, and also superior service to that on offer at our multiple competitors."
