Leading retailer, Screwfix is set to open its 600th UK store on the Trident Industrial Estate in Hoddesdon; its 100th store opening in the past 18 months alone.

The new store, which has created 8 jobs in the town, officially opens its doors on Thursday 20th September in the Trident Industrial Estate, Pindar Road, EN11 0WZ

“Hoddesdon is a natural choice for us to open our 600th store, as we know how passionate tradespeople are in the Hertfordshire area about getting the job done well. Like them, Screwfix is about high quality, professional customer service,” said Ritchie Burgess, the new store manager.

Since opening its first store in Yeovil in 2005, Screwfix has grown significantly, with 97 per cent of the UK population within a 30-minute drive from their nearest store. There are now 11 stores in the Hertfordshire area serving both tradespeople and serious DIY enthusiasts.

Throughout the store’s launch celebration period from Thursday 20th September and through the weekend until Sunday 23rd September, Screwfix will offer a 10% discount on all product ranges among other store specific special offers, plus there will be Milwaukee product demos and local dignitary visits.

Tradespeople and serious DIYers are all invited to attend the opening and can demonstrate their professional skills in a free-to-enter competition. The winner will receive a 40in smart TV.

Richie 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.

“I’m confident we’ve got a great location here in Hoddesdon. My team and I have already been getting to know local businesses and tradespeople and look forward to working with these hardworking, friendly people.”

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.
