Kingfisher has confirmed plans to roll out Screwfix stores into the Republic of Ireland from 2019, to complement its existing online presence.  

On the Republic of Ireland openings:

"We also remain confident that the Screwfix model will work in markets outside of the UK. In 2019 Screwfix plans to open outlets in the Republic of Ireland. The choice of entering this market is a result of Screwfix’s strong existing online presence and similarities in customer behaviour with the UK.

"Screwfix’s experience in Germany highlighted the importance of staying true to its core model and of extensive testing. We are embedding this experience into our plans and conducting extensive validation for market entry opportunities in France and Poland, initially via an online presence. These are both markets where the Group has existing scale, infrastructure and in-depth market knowledge."
