Sunbelt Rentals last week announced it will kick off the summer rental season with open houses at all three of its equipment rental locations in Chicago on Thursday, June 22, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The events are being held at the same time on the same day in each of Sunbelt's Chicago general rental stores so that customers can attend wherever they're working in the city.
The highlight of the event will be autograph signings from Chicago Bears football players, including Alex Brown, Charles "Peanut" Tillman and Roberto Garza.
Attendees will also have the chance to win tickets to the October 8, 2006 Chicago Bears vs. Buffalo Bills home game. The event will also include vendor demonstrations, door prizes, and a free catered lunch served from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Complete event details are available online at www.sunbeltrentals.com.
Sunbelt Rentals opened its newest Countryside, Ill., location in February. In addition to a broad range of larger specialty, construction and industrial equipment, the three Sunbelt stores feature an expanded selection of products for smaller contractors and homeowners, including items such as garden tillers, floor sanders, paint sprayers, pumps, generators, ladders, compactors, saws and accessories for sale.
Additionally, Sunbelt has a specialty Pump & Power business serving the city's needs and plans to add new locations in the coming year.
