THE opening of Builders Superstore in Kokstad has provided hope for staff and customers.
The outlet, formerly called Federated Timbers, then Builders Trade and Depo, has been operating in the CBD for many years, but last Thursday reopened under a new name - Builders Superstore - and with new uniforms for the staff.

“The new name came with good things for the market.
“ We have new quality products and a new look after renovations of the shop.
“The management took a decision not to change staff, but rather to change the colour of the uniform,” said store manager Douglas Wolhuter.

Fezeka Ndlebe (51), has been working for the outlet for more than 10 years.
She said the new name has brought hope for better things.
“The new name is going to boost our self-confidence as staff.”
