Shopping giveaway winner takes home $1,000 in  merchandise



It got a little greener for Umber’s customers Steven and Susan Lash.

On June 15, 2009, Mr. Lash was chosen as the winner of the Umber’s Do It Best Hardware $1,000 Shopping Giveaway. Mr. Lash was selected at random from more than 1,200 entries submitted at the store from March 2-May 31.

Quote from Winner: “When we sign up for such things we always believe that we have just as much chance as anyone else. In other words, “why not us…and this time we won!”

“Umber’s has been a part of Susan’s life since childhood. It’s a place one can depend upon for a boatload of knowledge about the projects and they brainstorm with you. Friendly, knowledgeable, well established customer oriented employees are enough for us to keep coming back!”

Dave Umber said that Umber’s Do It Best Hardware is delighted to provide one of its customers with the opportunity to make their spring projects a little more exciting. “Everyone has a few extra chores this time of year, and we’re glad that Steven will be able to choose whatever tools he wants to get the job done. We thank all those who entered the giveaway for their participation.
