Neil has shown a keen interest in Phoenix for a number of years, so we were delighted when he agreed to be our patron. At his store on East Road, Mackay’s, we have Phoenix wares on display, and Neil is often on hand to tell potential customers about us, and critically, give directions to the site!
Neil is something of a legend in the DIY world, and in fact, won the inaugural Industry Personality Award in 2017, with the judges commenting particularly on how he strove to make retailing engaging and fun.
Mackay’s has been part of the Cambridge landscape for over a hundred years, selling hand and power tools, ironmongery, fasteners and fittings, ladders and access equipment, personal protection equipment, garden tools, and more. Mackay’s also have some of the most endlessly patient sales assistants in Cambridge – their web site might say “where the professionals shop”, but they are very welcoming to amateurs as well!
