Screwfix is celebrating the opening of its new store in Worksop.
The Worksop Screwfix store is part of the company’s nationwide store expansion plan, which saw the retailer open 60 new UK stores in 2015 with a further 60 to be added this year.
The company uses its own innovative retail model, which aims to provide its customers with outstanding service, together with value and convenience.
Already 90 per cent of the UK population is within a 20 minute drive of a Screwfix store.
Screwfix’s Worksop Store Manager, Donna Hydes, said: “We chose to open a new store in Worksop because it’s a growing town with a great trade presence.
“Many of our customers already shopped with us at our Dinnington and Mansfield stores and are delighted to see us here, as they no longer have to travel so far.”
“Our celebration period, which ran from Thursday, February 11, and throughout the weekend until Sunday, February 14, attracted hundreds of customers and we are looking forward to welcoming many more local people over the coming months.
“We have received fantastic support from the local community, who have all shown a keen interest in the store.
“It has been extremely exciting that we have already attracted repeat business and we are all enjoying getting to know new customers.”
Another aspect of Screwfix’s stores initiative is that the company is looking to become actively involved with local charities through its own registered charity arm, The Screwfix Foundation, which supports local charities and community projects with donations for projects.
