Screwfix celebrates 500th store
Screwfix has opened its 500th UK store at Lumina Park, Enfield, north London, marking a major milestone in the retailer’s expansion of its store network.
Since opening its first store in Yeovil in 2005, Screwfix has grown significantly meaning 90% of the UK population is within a 20 minute drive time of a store.
Screwfix’s second store in Enfield – Southbury has brought 15 more jobs to the local community, bringing the UK Screwfix team to over 10,000 employees. In 2016, Screwfix was crowned ‘Employer of the Year’ by Retail Week and as one of the Glassdoor Best Places to Work in 2017.
Andrew Livingston, CEO of Screwfix, said, ‘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 to meet the needs of our busy customers.’
Screwfix plans to have a network of around 600 stores in the next couple of years.
