Ipswich’s second Screwfix store to open on 8th October

Multi-channel trade retailer Screwfix is to officially open its second store in Ipswich on 8th October on Whitehouse Industrial Estate. The new branch is building on the success at Ipswich’s store at Ransomes Europark. The new Ipswich-Whitehouse store will create an additional 13 jobs and is part of the company’s ongoing expansion plans.

Screwfix’s new Ipswich-Whitehouse Store Manager, Nicola Dean is proud of the contribution the new store has made to local employment figures in the area. “We’ve created 13 brand new vacancies and have employed local people from around the Ipswich 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.”

Tradesmen and DIYers are all invited to attend the new Screwfix store opening on Whitehouse Industrial Estate, where they can also demonstrate their professional skills in a free-to-enter screw drilling competition. The fastest time wins a 40in smart TV.

Throughout the store’s launch celebration period from Thursday 8th October and into the weekend until Sunday 11th October all product ranges within the Ipswich- Whitehouse store will carry a 10% discount and there will be product demonstrations taking place.

Nicola believes that the store’s convenient location and the ability to provide a Click and Collect service within just five minutes of ordering will be a real bonus to local tradesmen.

“I’m confident that we’ve got a great location here at the Ipswich-Whitehouse 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”.

“At Screwfix we pride ourselves on meeting the needs of today’s busy tradesmen and DIY enthusiasts with a speedy, reliable and convenient service, plus quality value-for-money products. By opening a second store here in Ipswich we are able to provide our customers with even more opportunities to conveniently pick up the supplies they need for the job.”
