Top tiles DIY night courses – Australia.

Posted onOctober 2, 2010

Top tiles DIY night courses – Australia.

Top tiles stores hold a DIY night once a month at each store. These sessions are always held on a Wednesday night once a month, starting at 6.00pm and ending about 8.30-9.00pm. We structure the content of the class around the style of job the attendees are undertaking. It is an excellent way to gain some insights to the ½ dozen “secrets” that make the difference between a handyman job and a skilled professional one.

If you have bought tiles from us, then the evening is free! If you have not bought yet, then we do charge a $40 fee which is discounted off any purchase (you can bring your partner free). On the night we also offer (for purchases on the night only) an exceptional 10% discount off all Glue, Grout and Accessories. The classes are held by skilled persons and it is not just sitting down watching a DVD as you might see at some hardware stores.

In order to attend it is very wise to register at your nearest store. We will call 2-3 days before hand to remind you and we will also confirm if you are coming along on the morning of the class. For the details and dates of your next session please call Underwood on 07 3808 8805, Brendale on 07 3881 2775 or Maroochydore on 07 5443 2227. We look forward to seeing you there; we will even provide you a drink and a biscuit.
