Jewson Wokingham relocates to brand new, larger unit

Published: 19 October 2018 - Fiona Garcia
 

Increased customer demand has seen the builders’ merchant move its Wokingham branch from Barkham Road to a new-build 2,936sq m site on Molly Millars Lane.

The new branch also has better access, meaning it can handle more customer deliveries and collections.

Jewson Wokingham branch manager, Jamie Charman said: “We understand that our customers need instant access to a wide range of products, so moving to a larger site means we can provide that service to make their lives easier. We’ve been able to boost our stocks across a number of key ranges including insulation, drylining, bricks and timber.”

The relocation has also created two new jobs, with scope for even more roles to be added in the coming months. 

The launch was celebrated with an event at the new location late last month, and featured live product demonstrations, exclusive offers and free giveaways.
