Rochester celebrates new Screwfix store opening
Screwfix is celebrating the successful launch of its most recent store opening on Pelican View Business Park, ME1 3QX. The store officially opened its doors on Thursday 18th July with hundreds of eager customers ready to stock up on the latest tools and trade essentials.
The Rochester Screwfix store is part of the company’s growing network of over 635 stores nationwide, meaning 97% of the UK population is within a 30-minute drive of a store. Open seven days a week from 7am Monday to Friday, the store also provides a convenient Click & Collect service that is available at all Screwfix locations. Using this service, customers can order their goods online or over the phone and pick them up from a store in as little as one minute.
Screwfix’s Rochester Store Manager, Mandy Ridgewell, said: “We chose to open a new store in Rochester to better meet the needs of the local tradespeople. Many of our new customers previously shopped with Screwfix at our Gillingham and Aylesford stores, so we’re delighted to bring Screwfix even closer to them for greater convenience.
“Our celebration period, which ran from Thursday 18th July throughout the weekend, until Sunday 21st July, attracted hundreds of customers. We have received fantastic support from local homes and from the local community and are looking forward to welcoming and helping more tradespeople and serious DIYers over the coming months.”
The Screwfix Foundation, which is another aspect of Screwfix’s nationwide initiatives, supports local charities and community projects by providing donations to fix, repair or maintain local homes and community facilities. Screwfix staff are directly involved in helping community projects and host charity fundraising events within the stores.
