Bridging the generational skills gap
For several years now we have noticed a generational gap in DIY skills and know-how. This gap continues to grow, with many people under the age of 45 lacking the necessary skills and knowledge to tackle many basic DIY tasks.
This has in turn created a new type of DIY consumer – one that requires more from a brand than just great products at great prices. They want a DIY brand that connects with them and offers the kind of advice, support and service they need.
