Screwfix opens new Flint store

Published: 22 February 2019 - Kiran Grewal

Screwfix has announced a Flint store opening in Heinzel Court. The store officially opened its doors on Thursday February 14, with hundreds of eager customers ready to stock up on the latest tools and trade essentials, the company has said.

The Flint Screwfix store is part of the company’s growing network of over 615 stores nationwide, meaning 97% of the UK population is within a 30-minute drive of a store. Open seven days a week from 7am Monday to Friday, the store also provides a convenient Click & Collect service that is available at all Screwfix locations.  Using this service, customers can order their goods online or over the phone and pick them up from a store in as little as one minute.

Screwfix opened 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.

Screwfix’s Flint Store Manager, Jo Puckey, said: “We chose to open a new store in Flint to better meet the needs of the local tradespeople. Many of our new customers previously shopped with Screwfix at our Deeside and Chester stores, so we’re delighted to bring Screwfix even closer to them for greater convenience.

“Our celebration period, which ran from Thursday 14th February throughout the weekend, u

 

ntil Sunday 17th February 2019, attracted hundreds of customers. We have received fantastic support from local homes and from the local community and are looking forward to welcoming and helping more tradespeople and serious DIYers over the coming months.”

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.
