Wadebridge Screwfix store is declared a runaway success

By September 10, 2018News, Store Openings

Screwfix is celebrating the successful launch of its most recent store opening in Wadebridge, Cornwall. The store officially opened its doors on Thursday 6th September 2018 with hundreds of eager customers ready to stock-up on the latest tools and trade essentials.

The Wadebridge Screwfix store is part of the company’s growing network of over 590 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 Wadebridge Screwfix Store Manager, Simon Day, said: “We chose to open a new store in Wadebridge to better meet the needs of the local tradespeople. Many of our new customers previously shopped with Screwfix at our stores in Bodmin or Newquay, so we’re delighted to bring Screwfix even closer to them for greater convenience.

“Our celebration period, which ran from Thursday 6th September and throughout the weekend until Sunday 9th September, 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.
