My wife and I welcomed our first child last month. It was the greatest moment of my life watching our son being born.
I was determined to give him a life worth living with opportunities for success and greatness. That’s why I had opened another branch however; I needed a powerful generator to power it.
On one fateful day after a job painting a duplex in the Lekki area of Lagos, I was driving my car back to my work shop when I got a call. I didn’t pick it up as I was driving.
On getting to the office, I called the person who happened to be a fellow painter friend of mine. It was then that I heard of the “Paint more, win bigger” promo. I wasn’t sure what it was. He told me that it was the Sandtex Paints Black Friday campaign which just kicked off.
All I had to do to participate and win coooooooooooollll prizes was to visit any of the Sandtex Experience Centres and make purchases. I had heard of Sandtex Paints and had bought some paint products but who knows what prizes I could win?
I told my wife that we were going to visit an Experience Centre on Saturday 28th of November 2020 to buy some items in the hope of winning some prizes…hopefully in the form of cash. My mother –in-law was visiting so I figured that she could babysit. She agreed. I also started following Sandtex Paints.
Saturday the 28th had come and we were set and hopeful about winning. We arrived at the Experience Centre hoping to win a prize that would change our lives. This was my first time visiting an Experience Centre, usually my workers are the ones who go out to buy the paint. We visited the one at at Km 20, Lagos / Epe Expressway, Igbo Efon Bus-stop Agungi Village, Lekki.
It was interesting seeing all the paint products from Sandtex Satin to Sandtex Matt as well as the over 1500 colours that Sandtex had to offer. Most importantly… we saw the different prizes. We were excited! I had N2, 000,000 in one of my accounts which I had been saving for the purpose of purchasing equipment for the new branch, this was the perfect opportunity. I could kill two birds with one stone by buying the paint products that I needed and possibly win mouth-watery prizes (A generator would be fantastic). We bought cans of Sandtex VME, Matt, Satin and Finebuild in different Sandtex colours.
We saw other customers going up to claim their gifts but unfortunately no one called us to claim any gifts. “Oh well!” We thought. We were on our way leaving when a courteous sales representative came after us. Guess what? For all that we purchased we will be getting some prizes. Wow!
What were the prizes? A number of paint brushes, rollers and wait for it… A brand new 3.5 KVA GENERATOR! Imagine that. We couldn’t believe it. We were ecstatic.
We drove off with some of our prizes(our car couldn’t contain all the items we purchased and won) courtesy of Sandtex Paints.
That’s our Sandtex story.
