Screwfix is celebrating the successful launch of its latest store at Spencer Court, NE24 5TW. The new store officially opened its doors on Thursday 20 February with hundreds of eager customers ready to stock up on the latest tools and trade essentials.
The Blyth Screwfix store is part of the company’s growing network of over 650 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 Saturday, 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’s Blyth Store Manager, Kelly Stark, said: “We chose to open a new store in Blyth to better meet the needs of the local tradespeople. Many of our new customers previously shopped with Screwfix at our Ashington and Newcastle – Benton stores, so we’re delighted to bring Screwfix even closer to them for greater convenience.
“Our celebration weekend, which ran from Thursday 20 until Sunday 23 February, attracted hundreds of customers. We have received fantastic support from local homes and from the local community and are looking forward to supporting more busy tradespeople and serious DIYers in Blyth.”
