Hull’s second Screwfix store is declared a runaway success
Screwfix is celebrating with its 351st store opening their doors at Principal Trading Park, which was officially opened by Jean Bishop on 14 August. The store had a successful launch weekend with hundreds of customers eager to get their hands on a bargain.
The Hull St Andrews store – Screwfix’s 351st – 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 scheduled to launch 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 Hull St Andrews Store Manager Lee Aspin said: “We chose to open a new store in St Andrews because we have experienced fantastic success at Hull’s first store on Copenhagen Road. Many of our customers already shopped with us at Copenhagen Road so we are delighted to provide them with even more opportunities to pick up the supplies they need for the job.”
“Our celebration period, which ran from Thursday 14th to Sunday 17th August, 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 building new relationships with our customers.”
Another aspect of Screwfix’s nationwide stores initiative is that the company is actively involved with local charities through its own registered charity The Screwfix Foundation, which supports local charities and community projects involving fixing, repairing or maintaining buildings for those in need in the UK. Screwfix staff get directly involved in helping community projects and host charity fundraising events within the stores. Local registered charities are welcome to apply for funding from The Screwfix Foundation and can visit the Hull St Andrews Screwfix branch to pick up a Screwfix Foundation Leaflet for more information or download an application form from www.screwfixfoundation.com.
