Kingfisher announces 200th store milestone for Screwfix

Kingfisher has today published the following press release in relation to Screwfix:

The start of 2012 marks a high for Screwfix as the multi-channel trade supplier celebrates the launch of its 200th trade counter, creating a considerable national network for the brand that only began to introduce its store offering just six years ago.

The 200th store opened its doors at Heathrow on 26 January, a fitting location given that Screwfix is set to have 50 stores inside the M25 by the end of January 2012, creating almost 400 jobs in the process and making the leading trade brand even more accessible for busy tradesman on the move around and inside the M25.

Screwfix CEO, Steve Willett, said: “This is another fantastic milestone for Screwfix. Our national network is thriving and we’re especially pleased to bolster our presence around the Capital. This geographical expansion and the development of our ‘Click, Collect & Go’ service - which enables customers to check that the products they require are in stock, online or on their mobile, and then collect just 15 minutes later from their local branch – is helping us get physically closer to more customers, as well as providing an overall more convenient service for them.”

Combining trade prices and a massive range of leading brand name items, the unrivalled Screwfix catalogue offers over 18,000 products to tradesmen across the UK by ordering over the phone, online or in-store.
