Devizes’ first Screwfix store is declared a runaway success
Multi-channel trade retailer Screwfix is bucking a nationwide trend for retail outlet closures with its new branch at Devizes Trade Centre, Hopton Park, SN10 2EH, which officially opened on Thursday 24 April 2014. The store has already been declared a success with hundreds of customers visiting to get their hands on a bargain.
The Devizes store – Screwfix’s 338th – is part of the company’s nationwide store expansion plan, which saw the retailer open 60 new UK stores in 2013 with a further 60 stores to be added in 2014. The company uses its own innovative retail model, which aims to provide its customers with outstanding service, together with value and convenience. Already 91% of the UK population is within a 30 minute drive of a Screwfix store.
Screwfix’s Devizes store manager Mike Davey said: “We chose to open a new store in Devizes because it’s a growing market town with a great trade presence. Many of our customers already shopped with us at our Chippenham and Swindon stores and are delighted to see us here, as they no longer have to travel so far.”
“Our celebration period, which ran from Thursday 24 to Sunday 27 April attracted hundreds of customers and we are looking forward to welcoming many more local people over the coming months,” said Mike. “We have already been out and about getting to know businesses in Devizes and in return 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. We are looking forward to building a successful business here in Devizes.”
