59th Annual NARI-BIE Pottstown Home Show

Get ready for local Home Show

59th Annual NARI-BIE Pottstown Home Show

When: March 1 – 3, 2013  Hours: Fri 5pm to 9m, Sat 10am to 9pm and Sun 11am to 5pm.  Location: 50 Sunnybrook Road, Pottstown (across from Pottstown Hospital).  Who: Everyone and Anyone.  Tickets: Gate price is $5 for the 59th Annual NARI-BIE Pottstown Home Show and Children 16 and under free.  Organizers  NARI-BIE Building Industries Exchange

The annual Home Show is a three-day expo sponsored by the Building Industries Exchange (NARI-BIE) of Pottstown and Vicinity, Inc. and produced through volunteer efforts of NARI-BIE members.  Local businesses are invited to demonstrate their products and services to the Home Show’s 10,000 plus attendees. The Show offers drawings, prizes, demonstrations, and an all-under-one-roof opportunity for visitors to collect home improvement and building information from local professionals. The Directory of Construction Information, published annually by the NARI-BIE, will be available free of charge. Admission is $5 at the gate; children 16 and under are free. Over 300,000 discount admission tickets and coupon are distributed throughout the area.

We have been to the Home Show five times in the last decade and never once walked away without a new home improvement idea or an actually project.  That might be enough to keep some folks away but I guarantee that you will not walk away empty-handed.

It’s Not Just About Home remodeling

There is also seminars, food, entertainment and building competitions being offered.

Insider Tips

Bring your own Water!:  You don’t want to end up paying $4.00 for a bottle of water.  Also, a good pair of walking shoes.  There is a lot to see.  Throw some things in a backpack:  You can easily enter and exit the Sunnybrook Ballroom and Grounds with your backpack.  Plus there are a ton of people mingling around and a backpack always ends up being easier than a purse.

Bring Cash: Many of the vendors these days take cards, but it’s usually much faster if you have cash.  Some vendors will only take cash so make sure you don’t miss out on your favorite delicacy because you don’t have cash.
