Marking a major milestone in their store network expansion, Screwfix have officially celebrated the opening of store number 500.
Since opening its first store in Yeovil in 2005, Screwfix has grown at a rate of one store per week for the past six years, resulting in 90% of the UK population now just a 20 minute drive away from their local store.
The store in Luminea Park, Enfield, has brought 15 jobs to the local community, racking Screwfix’s UK Team up to an impressive 10,000 employees. Although, after being recognised as a 2016 ‘Employer of Year’ by Retail Week and one of the Glassdoor Best Places to Work in 2017, applications must be plentiful!
Speaking on behalf of the company, CEO Andrew Livingston stated “We’re immensely proud to be opening our 500th Screwfix store. This is a significant moment for our business and demonstrates our focus on continued growth.”
