Screwfix store

TRADE retailer Screwfix has officially opened its first store in Blackwood.

The new Pengam Road branch will create an additional 15 jobs and is part of the company’s ongoing expansion plans.

Screwfix’s new Blackwood store manager, Charlene Bashforth, is proud of the contribution the new store has made to employment figures in the region.

“We’ve created 15 brand new vacancies and have employed local people from around the Blackwood 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.”

Ms Bashforth added that she believed 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.

“I’m confident that we’ve got a great location here in Blackwood. 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 Blackwood and the surrounding local areas to our new store.”

The brand’s range of products and deals are also available online at, on Screwfix’s mobile site or over the phone on 0500 414141.
