Salute 2017 - Double Discount On 4Ground Pre-Orders

Preparations for Salute 2017 are now in full swing here at the Depot. We are stand TD21 for those who intend finding us on the day.

Unfortunately we have had to reduce our stand size from our normal 18' at most shows to 12' at Salute. This has the effect that much of our 4Ground stock will need to be left behind.

However, to compensate for this, we are offering an additional 10% discount, on top of the usual 10% discount, on any 4Ground items pre-ordered for collection at Salute before midnight 20th April.

This extra discount can be accessed by using coupon code '4GSalute2017' when using our checkout system and it is only available for pre-orders at Salute 2017.
