Screwfix moves closer to target of 1,000 branches
Screwfix is accelerating its store expansion programme across the UK, Republic of Ireland and France as it moves closer to its target of 1,000 branches.
Part of the Kingfisher group, the retailer has opened 87 stores in the last 12 months, which means it now has over 870 shops. The new launches have created more than 800 jobs spanning retail management, service assistant and supervisor roles.
The retailer has been committed to opening one store per week over the last ten years as it targets both tradespeople and DIYers.
John Mewett, Screwfix chief executive, said: “The ongoing expansion of our network ensures we continue to bring Screwfix ever closer to our customers.
“In response to sustained demand from tradespeople across the UK, Republic of Ireland and France, we have accelerated our store opening programme so that our customers are always near a Screwfix store.”
