The Whitechapel Screwfix store is part of the company’s growing network of over 650 stores nationwide, meaning 97% of the UK population is within a 30-minute drive of a store. Open seven days a week from 6am 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 Whitechapel Store Manager, Georgiana Ignat said: “We chose to open a new store in Whitechapel to better meet the needs of the local tradespeople. Many of our new customers previously shopped with Screwfix at our Highway and Bow stores, so we’re delighted to bring Screwfix even closer to them for greater convenience.

“Our celebration weekend, which ran from Monday 10th until Thursday 13th February, attracted hundreds of customers. We have received fantastic support from local homes and from the local community and are looking forward to supporting more busy tradespeople and serious DIYers in Whitechapel.”
