Essential reading for retailers and suppliers in the home improvement market

More Tales From Behind The Counter – the perfect stocking filler!

Published: 3 December 2020 - Neil Mead

More Tales From Behind The Counter is the latest book written by author and friend of DIY Week, Graham Higson, in which he takes an amusing peak behind the hardware retailer’s counter, that anyone in the business, or even those those who aren't, will find very entertaining.


Novels about shop work are rare, and ones about hardware shops even rarer, yet here is another volume of tales reflecting the changes that have affected all retailers, large and small, and told in the same amusing and whimsical style as in the first book, How Much For a Little Screw?

In this latest collection (that includes All Mod Cons and Bobo and the Burglars), the hardware man and his eccentric, yet loyal, staff are faced with a gang of con merchants, and then the devastation of demolition burglars. With a swimming pool of sludge and a woman customer who's determined to rearrange his anatomy, those were more than trying times back in the '90s.

Available in paperback from Amazon, £10 postage free, this book will make the ideal gift for anyone working in the DIY and home improvement industry, even if you are buying for yourself. Check out the following link to place your order on Amazon here
