Players and bosses from the local football club helped Hays Travel staff to open the agency chain’s new branch in the Lincolnshire town of Gainsborough.
Gainsborough Trinity FC’s manager, Russ Wilcox, and joint chairman Dave Horsley took part in the official ribbon cutting to open the branch on Marshall’s Yard shopping centre on Thursday (January 18), along with striker Declan Hose and defender Lewis Butroid.
They then met the branch’s customers, suppliers, and staff, including branch manager Lisa Favell.
Wilcox said: “We are delighted to welcome such an established company as Hays Travel to Gainsborough – a brand looking to provide great value to the supporters of Gainsborough Trinity and the wider Gainsborough community.
“It is brilliant to see one of our longstanding partners Marshalls Yard attracting businesses like this to the area and shows we are a growing town, with a bright future, hopefully synonymous with the football club moving forwards.”
Customers who have made a booking at the branch since it opened in late December, following a £100k refurbishment, were invited to attend the official opening.
Those present at the event could win a selection of prizes, including a £100 Love to shop voucher, courtesy of Travelpshere and Just You; a Jet2 Holidays premium goody bag; or two sets of family tickets to a game of their choice this season at Gainsborough Trinity FC.
Jane Schumm, retail director of Hays Travel, said: “We were looking for the right location in the heart of Lincolnshire and we are thrilled with our new branch in Gainsborough at Marshalls Yard.
“The feedback from customers since our soft opening in December has been excellent. I wish Lisa and her team all the best with growing their customer base in Gainsborough area by delivering the exceptional customer service and experience that Hays Travel is known for.”
