A year later, after Mrs K Zaschke retired, Chris moved to manage the DIY department. Mrs Zaschke always ran the department as a friendly and welcoming place and Chris is proud to have continued with this approach. He still serves customers from that era as well as new generations of DIY enthusiasts.
