FINSA family fun day a huge success for young and old

A great time was had by all at the FINSA Family Fun Day last Saturday at our new store in Birmingham.

Customers and local residents stopped by to take part in the fun, with a bouncy castle, games face painting and of course ice cream – which was appreciated by all on such a warm day!

The Birmingham store at Lichfield Road Business Park opened in the spring and is FINSA’s second in the UK, along with their existing outlet in Birkenhead on Merseyside.

And It wasn’t just the youngsters enjoying themselves on the day. Adults were able to make some real savings, such as flooring from £2.99 per square metre and even free underlay on all purchases.

Take a look at some of our pictures of the day below.
