Pik-a-Dilly RV Centre Newsletter – January 25, 2013
Intro/Letter From the Editor – Ryan Main – General Manager
I’d like to open 2013 with an apology to all of our loyal newsletter readers and subscribers. We changed our website last spring and, as all things technological go, had some hiccups that needed to be ironed out in regards to the newsletter and carrying forward what we had done with it previously. That said, we are excited to have a new site up and running and a lot of new changes within the walls of Pik-A-Dilly RV Centre to pass along.
First and foremost, with my expanding list of duties on a day-to-day basis at the dealership I will no longer be the editor-in-chief of the monthly newsletter. With the new website may come a different look as well as a different style that will be supplied by Todd Heselwood. Todd, as some of you may recall, started as our lot guy/jack-of-all-trades and still does some of that work. However, now that he has graduated from university, he has added to his role at Pik-A-Dilly with online responsibilities. If you’re into the social media scene, be sure to like our Facebook Page or follow us on Twitter. Todd has spearheaded those two projects and we will be offering specials to our fellow social media members through those portals.
Dealership News – Don Main – President
Wow! 50 years went by fairly quickly, but last year was a bit of a blur! We have officially completed our 50th Anniversary and as you know we celebrated for the entire twelve months of 2012. The highlight of the year for me was the announcement of our $50,000 commitment to Murray House which is currently under construction. Sixty percent of our business is derived from outside the city of Brandon and having had family experience with cancer, we felt it was a perfect opportunity to give back not only to the community but to those from outside the city that have supported us over the years as well. After all, Murray House is designed to accommodate people requiring cancer treatment from the entire region and we couldn’t think of a better project to support. Let’s hope that none of us ever needs the facility, but it is available if necessary.
We’re now looking forward to 2013 and the big kick-off for us is our Annual Indoor Show and Sale January 31st to February 3rd at the Manitoba Room at Brandon’s Keystone centre. Come and check out the new models for 2013 and search for some of the best pricing on accessories ever! Ryan and the team have spent a lot of time with suppliers and manufacturers creating quantity buys to pass on during this event and I’m sure you’ll be more than surprised by the discounts. If you have an interest in anything we sell, I believe our show pricing can’t be beat – by anyone!
Our entire team is excited and ready for the show. We look forward to it every year and I can tell you, all were pretty happy to hear that the current cold snap will break in time for set up. Hope to see you there!
Sales Department News – Dave Shepherd – Sales Manager
We extend a warm and hearty invitation to all Past, Present and Future customers to come join us at our Annual Indoor Show and Sale taking place January 31st to February 3rd. Even though mother nature has hit us with some of her nastiest weather, we can guarantee that the Keystone Centre’s Manitoba Room will be Summertime warm.
Showtime is the time to save. We have negotiated with our manufacturers for the maximum discounts, taken advantage of volume purchases and buying opportunities and put forth the most aggressive pricing you will see for the entire year. This all adds up to the customer getting their best deal of the year.
Our Annual Show and Sale provides an opportunity to introduce our customers to new product lines and floor plans. This year is no exception. We will be showing for the first time – Catalina travel trailers from Coachman Recreational Vehicles. Catalina covers the world of travel trailers with their Deluxe and Santara lines. They are the most aggressively priced travel trailer on the market with floor plans built to fit any need.
In addition to the new line, we also have new floor plans from all our Keystone products. Check out the new 2013 Passport GT 2300BH ultra-lite or if you are looking for more space the 2013 Sprinter 316BIK travel trailer might be more to your liking. Many of the 2013 Springdale travel trailer most popular floor plans have been redesigned with the popular side aisle bathrooms, and the 2013 Laredo 5th wheels are sporting a new luxurious exterior package in both the easily towed “Super Lites” and the ‘Life Size’ Luxury models. Showtime is always the best time to save at Pik-A-Dilly – See you there!
