Kingfisher retailer Screwfix is celebrating its 500th store milestone with the opening of its new Enfield branch, the second in the area, which will create 15 new jobs.
Since opening its first store in Yeovil back in 2005, Screwfix has launched one store per week for the last six years. This means that 90% of the UK population is now within a 20 minute drive of a store. There are currently more than 10,000 Screwfix employees across the UK.
Said chief executive Andrew Livingston, “We’re immensely proud to be opening our 500th Screwfix store. This is a significant moment for our business and demonstrates our focus on continued growth to meet the needs of our busy customers.
“As we reach this milestone for Screwfix, I want to thank our staff and, of course our customers. Our success relies on their success, so we remain as committed as ever to making things easier for them.”
The extensive Screwfix store network is visited by 2.9m customers a year and Screwfix.com by 2.5 million unique visitors each week. Its Click & Collect service has received more than 13 million orders.
