Screwfix officially opens Port Talbot branch

Screwfix Port Talbot opening day 725 x 500

Screwfix is celebrating with its most recent store opening its doors on Baglan Industrial Park which officially opened on Thursday 19th May. The store had a successful launch weekend with hundreds of customers eager to get their hands on a bargain.

The Port Talbot Screwfix store is part of the company’s nationwide store expansion plan, which saw the retailer open 60 new UK stores in 2015. The company uses its own innovative retail model, which aims to provide its customers with outstanding service, together with value and convenience. Already 90% of the UK population is within a 30 minute drive of a Screwfix store.

Screwfix’s Port Talbot Store Manager Phil Jones said: “We chose to open a new store in Port Talbot because it’s a growing town with a great trade presence. Many of our customers already shopped with us at our Swansea Enterprise Park and Swansea Parc Tawe stores and are delighted to see us here, as they no longer have to travel so far.”

“Our celebration period, which ran from Thursday 19th May and throughout the weekend until Sunday 22nd May attracted hundreds of customers and we are looking forward to welcoming many more local people over the coming months. We have received fantastic support from the local community, who have all shown a keen interest in the store. It has been extremely exciting that we have already attracted repeat business and we are all enjoying getting to know new customers.”

Another aspect of Screwfix’s nationwide stores initiative is that the company is looking to become actively involved with local charities through its own registered charity arm The Screwfix Foundation, which supports local charities and community projects with donations for projects involving fixing, repairing or maintaining buildings. Screwfix staff get directly involved in helping community projects and host charity fundraising events within the stores.

Local registered charities are welcome to apply for funding from The Screwfix Foundation and can visit Port Talbot’s Screwfix branch to pick up a Screwfix Foundation Leaflet for more information. Alternatively they can download an application form from www.screwfixfoundation.com

Visit Screwfix’s Port Talbot store at; Unit 24, Baglan Industrial Park, Aberavon Road, Baglan, Port Talbot SA12 7DJ Monday to Friday 7am-8pm, Saturday 8am-6pm and Sunday 10am-4pm.
