Leeds’ third Screwfix store to open in November
Multi-channel trade retailer Screwfix is to officially open its third store in Leeds on Thursday 17th November at Thwaite Gate. The new branch is building on the success of the Leeds store at Olympia Trade Park, and Leeds – Seacroft store on Seacroft Industrial Estate. The new Leeds – Stourton store will create an additional 15 jobs and is part of the company’s ongoing expansion plans.
Screwfix’s new Leeds – Stourton Store Manager, Vicky Burch is proud of the contribution the new store has made to local employment figures in the area. “We’ve created 15 brand new vacancies and have employed local people from around the Leeds 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 Thwaite Gate where they can also demonstrate their professional skills in a free-to-enter screw drilling competition. The fastest time wins a 40in smart TV.
