Glasgow decorator drives away with top prize

Stephen Davidson, Regional Controller for Scotland and Lakes (L) presents Colin Baker with the keys to his new van.

A delighted decorator from Glasgow has driven away in a brand new van this week, after bagging the top prize in an exclusive Johnstone’s Decorating Centre competition.

A beaming Colin Baker, of Motherwell-based Baker Decor, was thrilled to be presented with the 2013 plate white van, one of two up for grabs nationwide, at his local Johnstone’s Decorating Centre in Glasgow.

Johnstone’s recent ‘Scratch N Go’ competition, which ran during May and June, was open to all customers at Johnstone’s Decorating Centres across the UK, with decorators receiving a special scratchcard with any purchase. Each and every scratchcard was a winner, and with prizes including £50 high street vouchers, thousands of money saving offers, Johnstone’s branded products and two new vans, there was everything to play for.

Colin commented: “I’m a regular customer at both the Motherwell and Garrowhill Johnstone’s Decorating Centre branches and have always been impressed with the quality of service offered with the staff prepared to go out of their way to help.

“When I got the scratchcard and saw that I had won the van, I did not believe it and was looking for the hidden cameras! I am absolutely delighted – it couldn’t have come at a better time too as we are in the process of expanding and it will be a real asset in the future of Baker Decor Ltd.”

There are four Johnstone’s Decorating Centres in Glasgow, all of which open Monday to Friday 7.00am-5pm and on Saturdays from 8am-12noon with a full range of decorating essentials on offer. To find your nearest Johnstone’s Decorating Centre download the Johnstone’s Store Locator App or visit
