Chelmsford second Screwfix store is declared a runaway success

Screwfix is celebrating with its most recent store opening its doors on Chelmsford Trade Park, which officially opened on Thursday 15th March 2018. The store had a successful launch weekend with hundreds of customers eager to get their hands on a bargain.

The Chelmsford – Westway Screwfix store is part of the company’s growing network of over 550 stores nationwide, meaning 97% of the UK population is within a 30 minute drive of a store. Open seven days a week and from 7am Monday to Friday, the store also provides a convenient, Click & Collect service 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 Chelmsford – Westway Store Manager Ian Stanley said: “We chose to open a new store in Chelmsford because it’s a growing city with a great trade presence. Many of our customers already shopped with us at our Chelmsford – Northumberland Court and Brentwood stores and are delighted to see us here, as they no longer have to travel so far.”

“Our celebration period, which ran from Thursday 15th March and throughout the weekend until Sunday 18th March 2018, 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, including a representative from Chelmsford City FC.  It has been extremely exciting that we have already attracted repeat business and we are all enjoying getting to know new customers.”
