Planning on visiting Bloodstock Open Air this year? Travelling with a tent, as any self-respecting music-lover will confess, can be a major hassle. But help is at hand as Halfords, plans to make the annual summer pilgrimage a little easier by bringing festival-goers an on-site tent and camping accessories collection service for the second year running, widening its offer to several new sites.
Whether it’s to experience those once-in-a lifetime musical moments, escape the stresses of life or just hang out with friends, festivals matter and that’s why Halfords is trying to make life easier by bringing its pre-order service to Bloodstock. It means customers can choose from any tent at Halfords, pay in advance and then collect from the on-site store.
In keeping with the festival spirit, Halfords will also have a pop-up store at each festival, meaning that customers can pick up those all-important outdoor essentials from cosy sleeping bags to all-important tent pegs.
“Whether you’re a glamorous camper, a mud-splattered veteran or a friends group of four, packing for a festival in the UK can be heavy-duty affair. Our pre-order service means we can make your journey easier and the only thing you’ll have to worry about is pitching your tent. Last year the service proved so popular that we even had orders from international festival-goers, so we’ve decided to expand our offering.”
The pre-order service allows campers to choose from Halfords wide range of tents and accessories online, pay in advance and select the option to collect on-site at one of five festivals.
Customers can place their order via Tent Pre-Order Service from today at http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_storeId_10001_catalogId_14552_productId_1135995_langId_-1_categoryId_173014
