Screwfix is celebrating with its most recent store opening its doors on Stamford Retail Park which officially opened on Thursday, May 12.

The store had a successful launch weekend with hundreds of customers eager to get their hands on a bargain.

The Stamford Screwfix store is part of the company’s nationwide store expansion plan, which saw the retailer open 60 new UK stores in 2015.

Screwfix’s Stamford store manager Rob Taunton said: “We chose to open a new store in Stamford because it’s a growing town with a great trade presence. Many of our customers

already shopped with us at our Peterborough and Bourne stores and are delighted to see us here, as they no longer have to travel so far.

“Our celebration period, which ran from Thursday, May 12 and throughout the weekend until Sunday, May 15, attracted hundreds of customers and we are looking forward to welcoming

many more local people over the coming months.

“We have received fantastic support from the local community, who have all shown a keen interest in the store. It has been extremely exciting that we have already attracted repeat business and we are all enjoying getting to know new customers.”

Another aspect of Screwfix’s nationwide stores initiative is that the company is looking to become actively involved with local charities through its own registered charity arm The

Screwfix Foundation, which supports local charities and community projects with donations for projects involving fixing, repairing or maintaining buildings.

Screwfix staff get directly involved in helping community projects and host charity fundraising events within the stores.

Local registered charities are welcome to apply for funding from The Screwfix Foundation and can visit Stamford Screwfix branch to pick up a Screwfix Foundation leaflet for more information. Alternatively they can download an application form online.
