St. Charles Do it Best Hardware hosted its first annual Spring Fling education and entertainment event on April 30. The event featured giveaways, product demonstrations, pet adoptions, and savings opportunities for area home improvement shoppers.

“We were really pleased with the customer response,” said General Manager Dave Nestor. “Since we opened last fall, this community has been so supportive. It was great to be able to return the favor with a fun, family-friendly event. We’re already looking forward to next year’s Spring Fling.”

Products from Milwaukee, DeWalt, Scotts, and many more were given away throughout the day, and one grand prize winner received a $500 shopping spree, said the St. Charles, Illinois-based company.

Demonstrations of Blackstone, Weber, and Broil King grills took place, and free food samples were offered. Customers who purchased a grill at the event also received a $25 gift card.

Attendees were educated on lawn care and maintenance by a representative from Scotts, and experts from Apex/Crescent, Blackstone, Broil King, Channellock, DeWalt, Milwaukee, Scotts, Sherwin-Williams, and Weber were also on-site to provide product demonstrations.
