MOTHERS DAY SALE – 20% OFF EVERYTHING
Just want to let you know we will be at the CUA Showcase area in Ruthven Street next week from Tuesday 8, May through to Friday 11 May.
You can find us by walking through the CUA or off the lane from Ruthven Street through to the Waltons Stores. We will have A-frame signs in the lane and Ruthven Street.
