Cleckheaton Screwfix store is declared a runaway success

By October 9, 2018News, Store Openings

Screwfix is celebrating the successful launch of its most recent store opening in Cleckheaton, West Yorkshire. The store officially opened its doors on Thursday 4th October 2018 with hundreds of eager customers ready to stock-up on the latest tools and trade essentials.

The Cleckheaton Screwfix store is part of the company’s growing network of over 600 stores nationwide, meaning 97% of the UK population is within a 30-minute drive of a store. Open seven days a week and from 7am Monday to Friday, the store also provides a convenient, Click & Collect service 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.

The Cleckheaton Screwfix Store Manager, Kevin Gordon, said: “We chose to open a new store in Cleckheaton to better meet the needs of the local tradespeople. Many of our new customers previously shopped with Screwfix at our stores in Brighouse or Birstall, so we’re delighted to bring Screwfix even closer to them for greater convenience.

“Our celebration period, which ran from Thursday 4th October and throughout the weekend until Sunday 7th October, attracted hundreds of customers. We have received fantastic support from the local homes or community facilities 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 or community facilities.  Screwfix staff get directly involved in helping community projects and host charity fundraising events within the stores.

Cleckheaton local registered charities are welcome to apply for funding from The Screwfix Foundation by visiting Cleckheaton Screwfix branch to pick up a Screwfix Foundation leaflet for more information. Alternatively, they can download an application form from www.screwfixfoundation.com
