Hancocks to hold Sweetest Day events in all depots


Leading confectionery wholesaler Hancocks has announced Sweetest Day events in its depots.

The events, which follow a string of successful 60th anniversary store events last year, are designed to celebrate their customers and provide them with some of the best offers and deals available across the extensive range of brands and products.

Sweetest Day celebrations will take place across all 14 of Hancocks’ depots from 8am to 8pm, with the first event commencing on 9 March, and will be sponsored by Perfetti and Nestle.

Customers will be given the chance to make the most of the confectionery giant’s one day only deals from well-known brands like Cadbury, Swizzels, Kingsway and Toxic Waste.

One of the great deals available for shoppers will be £1 off all Kingsway 3kg bags, including top sellers Tongue Painters, Bubblegum Bottles, Giant Strawberries and Fizzy Watermelon Slices.

There is a chance to receive £50 worth of Crazy Candy Factory lines for any customers who spend £500 in store on the day across any products available.

The deals and offers are exclusive to in-store customers and will not be available to shop online.

The unmissable events also offer the chance for customers to enjoy new product samples and have the chance to stock up on seasonal must-haves.

Hancocks will also be handing out prizes, as one lucky customer from each store will walk away with a Toshiba 43 inch TV and can also be entered into a prize draw to win £50 worth of love2shop vouchers.

“We had such a fantastic reaction to our 60th Birthday store events across the country last year and loved meeting so many new and established customers,” Kathryn Hague, head of marketing at Hancocks, said.

“We are so excited to bring our customers a day all about them – to give them the best offers and deals and allow them to taste samples and win some exciting prizes and giveaways.

“Being able to bring our in store customers events across the country this year is a testament to all of the hard work of the teams across the business and the support from our retail customers.”
