Leading trade retailer, Screwfix is celebrating the launch of its new store in Douglas on the Isle of Man. The store officially opened its doors on Spring Valley Industrial Estate, Springham Park, IM2 2QR on 7th March 2019 with hundreds of eager customers stocking up on the latest tools and trade essentials.

The Douglas Isle of Man store is part of the company’s growing network of over 620 stores nationwide, meaning 97% of the UK population are 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.

The new branch created 9 new jobs in the area and will help local tradespeople get what they need as quickly as possible to get the job done.

Screwfix’s Douglas-Isle of Man Store Manager, Shelley Flowers, is proud of the contributions the new store has made to employment figures in the region: “We’ve created 9 new jobs and employed people from around the Isle of Man. Our new team includes people with all different levels of experience, focused on providing superb customer service to meet the needs of our busy trade customers. Everyone here is really looking forward to the store opening.”

Shelley believes the store’s convenient location, extensive product range and ability to provide a Click & Collect service in as little as one minute from ordering, will be a real bonus to local tradespeople and DIY enthusiasts who need to get back to their jobs.

“Our celebration period, which ran from Thursday 7th March, throughout the weekend, until Sunday 10th March, 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.”

The brand’s huge range of the latest innovative and affordable products and exceptional deals are also available online at www.screwfix.com, on Screwfix’s mobile site or over the phone on 03330 112 112.

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.
