Posted by Blog Team | Posted in More | Posted on 03-02-2017

Did you hear the news? Our rewards programme, Juice, celebrated its first birthday last week. That’s right, we’ve had one whole year of points, prizes and juicy benefits. We couldn’t believe it either!

To mark the occasion we invited a special guest, who bares an oddly similar resemblance to Celebrity Juice host Keith Lemon, on a tour of Jewson branches up and down the UK.

From Glasgow to Exeter, our pal ‘Keith’ was in branches all day long helping out the Jewson staff and surprising customers with points, prizes and a Celebrity Juice-themed game or two.

Check out how Keith got on. Run VT! (It stands for video tape).

And NOW, you can read it right here online. That’s right, we’ve put it on the interwebs.

From The Great British Dunk Off and quizzes about beards to brick facts and tips on ‘going it alone’, it’s a good read. If we do say so ourselves.
