How would you feel if one of your favorite brands or stores was so impressed by your admiration for them that they wanted to make you part of their advert? Well, this is exactly one happened for one lucky 10 year old girl, Amelia Howarth.
Amelia was a big fan of the ads put out by ScS sofa (sofa. carpet.specialist.) She was such a fan she took it upon herself to write the company and let them know just how much she liked them, and how she practices acting them out at home for family and friends. For those of you not familiar with the company, ScS is one of the UK’s leading sofa and carpet retailers. It currently operates from 95 stores and employs more than 1,300 people nationwide. The company’s head office is based in Sunderland with stores in North East and North West England, Yorkshire, the Midlands, South East and South West England, Scotland, Wales and London.
When the company received the email they were so touched by Amelia’s kind words they invited her (her brother William and Mom) for a behind these scenes look at how their ads are created and a meeting with the face of ScS ads, Victoria Thomas.
Amelia attended the retailer’s store in Portrack Lane, Stockton, for her behind the scenes tour and see firsthand how the ads are put together. Amelia also got to exchange acting tips with Victoria on-set, and offer some of her ideas. I can only imagine how excited Amelia must have been. Here is what she had to say.
“I was really excited to visit the ScS store and meet Victoria from the ads. The whole day was really fantastic and I enjoyed meeting the nice people from ScS. I have shown all my friends the signed script I was given by Victoria and told them all about it. It really is the best day of my holidays and I can’t wait to see the new ads on the TV.”
Amelia’s Mother, Emma Howarth, also spoke out adding “I’m very thankful to ScS they really did make my 10-year-old daughter’s day. She was so excited from the moment we received the company’s reply. I really didn’t expect them to reply and say we could go to their shoot, but I’m really pleased that they did. It was a super day, and one that Amelia will not forget for a long while.”
It’s so nice to see a company that takes pride in their customers in such a rewarding way. I bet this was an experience Amelia will never forget. And who knows, Maybe one day she’ll be staring in her own commercial!
ScS’ new adverts will air on TV from 19 September, featuring new ranges for the autumn and much more.
