Open seven days a week and 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 Swadlincote Store Manager, Sandra Gumm said: “We chose to open a new store in Swadlincote to better meet the needs of the local tradespeople. Many of our new customers previously shopped with Screwfix at our Ashby-de-la-Zouch or Burton-on-Trent stores, so we’re delighted to bring Screwfix even closer to them for greater convenience.

“Our celebration period, which ran from Thursday 31st January until Sunday 3rd February 2019, attracted hundreds of customers. We have received fantastic support from the local community and are looking forward to welcoming and helping more tradespeople and serious DIYers over the coming months.”
