Trade outlet Screwfix to open a new branch on the Commerce Trade Park in Frome, creating 15 jobs.

The retail DIY and trade chain has said the Frome store opening is part of major expansion plans for the company in the South West and will open its doors later this month, though an exact date is yet to be finalised.

Screwfix's new Frome store manager, Jon Pound, said he is proud of the contribution the new store has made to employment figures in the region.

He said: "We've created 15 new vacancies and have employed local people from around the Frome area. Our new team includes people of all ages and levels of experience, but the most important requirement is that they have the right attitude and can offer superb customer service. Everyone here is really looking forward to the store opening."

Tradesmen and DIYers are all invited to attend the Frome Screwfix opening at Commerce Trade Park, where they can also demonstrate their professional skills in a free-to-enter screw drilling competition.

Throughout the store's launch celebration period all product ranges will carry a ten per cent discount among other store specific special offers.

Power tool manufacturers DeWalt & Hitachi, will be at the store on Commerce Trade Park, demonstrating a range of products from the Screwfix catalogue.

Mr Pound believes the store's convenient location and the ability to provide a Click and Collect service within just five minutes of ordering will be a real bonus to local tradesmen and DIY enthusiasts.

He said: "I'm confident that we've got a great location here in Frome. My team and I have already been out and about getting to know local businesses and tradesmen and we've all been struck by how friendly everyone has been."

"At Screwfix we pride ourselves on meeting the needs of today's busy tradesmen and serious DIYers with a speedy, reliable and convenient service, plus quality value-for-money products. We're keen to welcome tradesmen and DIY enthusiasts from Frome and the surrounding local areas to our new store."

A opening date is expected to be finalised in the coming days.

Screwfix has 400 stores throughout the UK and employs more than 7,500 people.
