Newcastle’s third Screwfix store is declared a runaway success

Screwfix is celebrating with its most recent store opening its doors on North Tyneside Industrial Estate, which officially opened on Thursday 11th August. The store had a successful launch weekend with hundreds of customers eager to get their hands on a bargain.


The Newcastle – Benton Screwfix store is part of the company’s nationwide store expansion plan, which saw the retailer open 60 new UK stores in 2015. The company uses its own innovative retail model, which aims to provide its customers with outstanding service, together with value and convenience. Already 90% of the UK population is within a 20 minute drive of a Screwfix store.


Screwfix’s Newcastle – Benton Store Manager Richard McGovern said: “We chose to open a new store in Newcastle – Benton because it’s a growing city with a great trade presence. Many of our customers already shopped with us at our North Shields and Gateshead – Stadium stores and are delighted to see us here, as they no longer have to travel so far.”


“Our celebration period, which ran from Thursday 11th August and throughout the weekend until Sunday 14th 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 getting to know new customers.”
