Home Centre celebrates 20 years with Buy-2-Get-1-Free offer

Home Centre, the largest home retailer in the Middle East, is celebrating 20 years in Saudi Arabia with a Buy-2-Get-1-Free promotion. The brand has expanded its reach throughout the Saudi market, with 36 stores located across the country.
As a gesture to its customers, Home Centre announced a special Buy-2-Get-1-Free promotion on spends above SR250 ($67) at all stores across the Kingdom. The promotion is running from Nov. 23 to Dec. 9.
Médéric Payne, CEO of Home Centre, said: “We pride ourselves on our local network in the Kingdom, and firmly believe in its potential. We have grown here from a single store in 1997, to a flourishing network providing an exceptional brand experience that caters to diverse local tastes, while remaining aligned to global trends.”
He added: “In an attempt to give back to the Kingdom, we make a concerted effort to remain aligned to the strategic priorities of the leadership, as is evidenced in our Saudization and feminization efforts — 48 percent of employees in the Kingdom are Saudi nationals, of which over 21 percent are women.”
Further adding to its reach across Saudi Arabia is Home Centre’s bilingual online platform on desktops and mobile phones, Homecentre.com. Customers can browse and purchase more than 5,500 products ranging from furniture and home accessories from the comfort of their homes.

In the past two decades, Home Centre has firmly established itself as a home-retail brand of choice for consumers across the country. Part of its success can also be attributed to our aim of bringing our stores closer to our customers, making their shopping experience convenient and enjoyable.”
“Home Centre seeks to continually add exceptional value and continually inspire shoppers in Saudi Arabia and across the region with its customer friendly in-store design, extensive portfolio of products, and value-added services with seamless multi-channel shopping,” the home retailer said in a press release.

Land Rover, Terry Grant smash world record

Land Rover and international stunt driver Terry Grant smashed a world record at this week’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, with a two-wheel speed run in the new Range Rover Sport SVR. Grant’s 2:24.5 run up the famous hillclimb broke Grant’s old record for a mile traveled in a car on two wheels, set in 2011, by more than 30 seconds.
Grant flipped the Range Rover Sport SVR up on to two wheels with the use of a ramp, before hitting speeds of up 60mph on Goodwood’s famous hillclimb as he set the new Guinness World Record time.
Grant snatched the record in a dramatic last gasp attempt on Sunday afternoon, having attempted four runs earlier in the weekend, none of which Grant managed to complete.
The Range Rover Sport SVR is a 575hp performance SUV, capable of 0-60mph in 4.3 seconds and a top speed of 174mph — with four wheels on the road, at least. The Range Rover Sport only required one modification for the world record run, a tweak to its differential to allow the car to deliver more power to the two wheels on the ground — both of which were pumped up to 90PSI.
Grant is a multiple world-record holder, with 25 Guinness World Records already to his name, and with this latest record, Grant has bested a 2:55 run that he himself set at Goodwood in 2011.
Stunt driver Grant said: “It really shouldn’t be underestimated how difficult a two-wheeled speed run like this is; you are always fighting to keep the car balanced right on the edge, as it tries to tip either one way or the other. You need to be conscious of everything, from the camber of the road to the strength of the wind. Thankfully, conditions were excellent and the Range Rover Sport SVR was the perfect precision tool for the job.”
The world record was not the only amazing Land Rover moment of the Festival of Speed, as 70 historic and important Land Rovers took to the hill in what was the largest batch of cars to ever tackle the famous route in one go. From 1948 to 2018, the parade of cars celebrated 70 years of one of Britain’s most iconic automotive brands.
