Chelmsford’s second Screwfix store to officially open in March

Omni-channel retailer Screwfix is to officially open its second store in Chelmsford on Thursday 15th March 2018 at Chelmsford Trade Park. The new branch is building on the success at Chelmsford – Northumberland Court store.

Screwfix’s new Chelmsford – Westway Store Manager, Ian Stanley is proud of the contribution the new store has made to local employment figures in the area. “We’ve created 10 brand new vacancies and have employed local people from around the Chelmsford area. Our new team includes people of all ages and levels of experience, but the most important requirement is that they have the right attitude and can offer superb customer service. Everyone here is really looking forward to the store opening.”

Tradespeople and DIYers are all invited to attend the new Screwfix store opening at Chelmsford Trade Park, where they can also demonstrate their skills in a free-to-enter competition. The winner will receive a 40in smart TV.

Throughout the store’s launch celebration period from Thursday 15th March and into the weekend until Sunday 18th March 2018, all product ranges within the Chelmsford – Westway store will carry a 10% discount and there will be product demonstrations taking place on the Thursday and Friday from Dewalt.

Ian believes that the store’s convenient location and the ability to provide a Click and Collect service in as little as one minute of ordering will be a real bonus to local tradespeople and DIY enthusiasts.

“I’m confident that we’ve got a great location here at the Chelmsford – Westway store. My team and I have already been out and about getting to know local businesses and tradesmen and we’ve been really pleased with how supportive everybody has been.
