Bermuda Gas will be exhibiting in two locations at this year’s Coldwell Banker Home Show.
You can find its products in booth 37 and also at the Age Concern exhibit and demonstration area.
But no matter which Bermuda Gas booth you visit, make sure you take advantage of the fun, the giveaways and prizes to be won.
Try your hand at the Tee-rific mini-putt golf game — there is the chance to win one of 12 hourly draws for a new Whirlpool microwave oven.
Then, at noon you can watch a presentation on barbecue basics by Makee Tucker, assistant service manager, in the Age Concern Zone. One person will also win a Bermuda Gas barbecue.
The stands will also be manned by staff eager to answer questions and provide information.
Bermuda Gas relocated to a new premises late last year, bringing its showroom, warehouse, service and parts departments, administration and customer care all under one roof, at 25 Serpentine Road, Pembroke.
David DeSilva, Bermuda Gas sales manager, said: “We’ve got the island’s largest selection of quality, energy-efficient gas and electric appliances, and the new showroom gives us the opportunity to showcase them,.
“We’re also open all-day Saturday now, from 9am to 5pm.”
Last year also saw other changes: The appointment of Judith Uddin as general manager; the conversion of the company’s vehicle fleet to fuel-efficient, propane-injection systems; and the introduction of a new website, to provide a wealth of information about products, services and promotions, plus information about the advantages of propane gas.
The holiday season also saw the return of the Bermuda Gas Christmas Turkey Giveaway. This year there were even fun mock protests from disgruntled turkeys on the streets of Hamilton.
“The Christmas Turkey Giveaway has become one of the most important and popular promotions we offer,” said Mr DeSilva.
“It’s definitely one of our favourites too, and we look forward to giving away more turkeys next holiday season.”
Bermuda Gas is now offering free propane-powered water heating systems to all Age Concern members throughout January.
It has also donated appliances to other charities such as the Salvation Army, Packwood Home, Bermuda National Trust, Bermuda Heart Foundation and Habitat for Humanity.
“Bermuda Gas has had a long history of community involvement, and this is one more example of it,” said Mr DeSilva.
