Selco To Remain Open For Business

Selco Builders Warehouse has confirmed all branches will remain open as normal throughout the lockdown period. 

Selco’s 66 branches in England will trade as usual beyond Thursday November 5, when some other businesses must close due to new Covid-19 restrictions. 

The company’s three branches in Wales are also open normally during the country’s shorter firebreak period. 

The confirmation comes after the Government announced that builders merchants in England will be considered an ‘essential service’ to ensure the nation’s tradespeople can continue to work. 

It has also been confirmed that tradespeople will be allowed to enter and work in residential properties. 

Selco chief executive Howard Luft said: “We are pleased that the Government has confirmed builders merchants offer an essential service and can continue to trade through this latest period of heavy restrictions. 

“It is vital that tradespeople are able to buy the materials they need to carry out important work in people’s homes. We are here to ensure they can do just that. 

“Hopefully better days lay ahead and I once again want to thank all Selco customers for their support and Selco colleagues for their dedication in keeping the business trading safely.” 

Selco branches are Covid-19 secure, with strict social distancing and sanitisation stations in place. 

All colleagues are wearing face coverings and customers are asked to play their part by doing the same. 

Selco’s Click & Collect and Click & Deliver services have both seen a boom in popularity since the branches reopened following the first lockdown earlier in the year. 

With hundreds of trade brands always in stock, Selco’s branches across the UK are firmly focused on helping tradespeople complete their jobs as quickly and effectively as possible.
