Do-it-yourself projects discounted for Father’s Day

A masonry materials outlet in Grand Junction will offer discounts on do-it-yourself kits as part of a Father’s Day promotion.

General Shale has scheduled its “Do It Yourself With Dad” event through June 16 at its retail outlet at 711 S. 15th St. The event will include a 15 percent discount on do-it-yourself outdoor living purchases, including fireplaces and fire pits, garden benches, pizza ovens and water features. The kits come complete with everything needed to complete the projects.

“We are pleased to offer a wide range of choices in our do-it-yourself projects, and our weekend discount prices make them a great Father’s Day gift,” said Dick Green, president and chief executive officer of General Shale. “This is a fun way for families to be involved in a project that can be completed in a short time — and used by the whole family for a long time to come.”

A leading brick, stone and concrete block manufacturer, General Shale operates manufacturing facilities in nine states and a network of 32 distribution centers. For more information, visit
