A man has been punched in the face at a Newry DIY store after he asked a member of staff for decking it has emerged today.
Aidan Quinn visited B&Q at Newry’s Damolly Retail Park yesterday to get himself some garden decking.
He told Newry Spud:
“My wife’s been on at me for months to sort the garden out. I’ve been really busy watching telly and stuff so I haven’t had time to get it done. But yesterday, I thought I’d head down to B&Q and sort it out.
All I did was walk up to the B&Q fella and say ‘I need decking’ and the next thing I know, I’m being carted off to Daisy Hill with a broken nose. That’s the last time I go there for anything. I usually get my Christmas trees from there but I’ll be going to Newry market this year baah.”
A spokesman for B&Q said:
“We apologise on behalf of our new member of staff. He was trying to be helpful but obviously misjudged our customer’s request.”
