Trade retailer, Screwfix is set to officially open its first store in Malton on 8 March 2018 at Malton Enterprise Park. The new branch will create 12 new jobs in the area and will help local tradespeople get what they need as quickly as possible to get the job done.

Screwfix’s new Malton store manager, Luke Melley is proud of the contributions the new store has made to employment figures in the region, he said: “We’ve created 12 new jobs and employed people from around the Malton area. Our new team includes people with all different levels of experience, focused on providing superb customer service to meet the needs of our busy trade customers. Everyone here is really looking forward to the store opening.”

Tradespeople and serious DIYers are all invited to attend the opening and can demonstrate their professional skills in a free-to-enter competition. The winner will receive a 40in smart TV.
