Screwfix to open new store in Carmarthen

Screwfix night

CARMARTHEN is set to receive a jobs boost with the announcement that Screwfix is preparing to open a new store in Johnstown.

The company already has more than 200 stores across the UK and is the largest multi-channel retailer of trade  tools, accessories and hardware products in the country.

The jobs boost comes on the back of the opening of Cymru Tyres's new, larger shop in Pensarn and news that local firm Bassett and MacGregor have submitted plans for two commercial  units in Parc Pensarn, which are expected to create new jobs in the town.

McDonald's has also brought good news to the area with confirmation that it will be opening a new restaurant in Pont Abraham. The restaurant will be situated just off the roundabout on the A48 in what is currently Road Chef and will bring 50 jobs to the county.

The arrival of new companies in the area has been widely welcomed, and according to businessman Andrew Bassett, it is a sign that the town is very much on the up.

He told the Journal: "Carmarthen is growing. More companies are interested in coming here and creating more jobs and it can only be good for the area."
