Screwfix celebrates more store openings

Screwfix has announced a successful launch of its store opening, the 4th store to open in Coventry. The store in Henley Industrial Park, officially opened its doors on March 7 2019 with hundreds of eager customers ready to stock up on the latest tools and trade essentials. On the same day, the company opened a new store in Helston Business Park, Clodgey Lane, Cornwall as well as a new store in Doulas on the Isle of Man.

This is part of the company’s growing network of over 620 stores nationwide, meaning 97% of the UK population are within a 30-minute drive of a store. Since Screwfix opening its 600th store in September – a major milestone for the UK retailer which has added 100 new stores to its network in the past 18 months, the rapid pace of store openings has only continued, suggesting major growth in the company, with a new store opening in Flint just last month.

Screwfix’s Douglas-Isle of Man store manager, Shelley Flowers, is proud of the contributions the new store has made to employment figures in the region: “We’ve created 9 new jobs and employed people from around the Isle of Man. 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.”

The Screwfix Foundation, which is another aspect of Screwfix’s nationwide initiatives, supports local charities and community projects by providing donations to fix, repair or maintain local homes and community facilities. Screwfix staff are directly involved in helping community projects and host charity fundraising events within the stores.
