Multi-channel trade retailer Screwfix is to officially open its first store in Ely on 12 February at Lancaster Way Business Park. The new branch will create an additional 13 jobs and is part of the company’s ongoing expansion plans.
Screwfix’s new Ely Store Manager Ben Cole is proud of the contribution the new store has made to employment figures in the region. “We’ve created 13 brand new vacancies and have employed local people from around the Ely area. Our new team includes people of all ages and levels of experience, but the most important requirement is that they have the right attitude and can offer superb customer service. Everyone here is really looking forward to the store opening.”
Tradesmen and DIYers are invited to attend the Ely Screwfix opening at Lancaster Way Business Park, where they can also demonstrate their professional skills in a free-to-enter screw drilling competition. The fastest time wins a 40in Toshiba smart TV.
Throughout the store’s launch celebration period from Thursday 12th February and through the weekend until Sunday 15th February, all product ranges will carry a 10% discount among other store specific special offers.
Ben believes that the store’s convenient location, plentiful parking and the ability to provide a Click and Collect service within just 5 minutes of ordering will be a real bonus to local tradesmen and DIY enthusiasts.
“I’m confident that we’ve got a great location here in Ely. My team and I have already been out and about getting to know local businesses and tradesmen and we’ve all been struck by how friendly everyone has been.”
“At Screwfix we pride ourselves on meeting the needs of today’s busy tradesmen and serious DIYers with a speedy, reliable and convenient service, plus quality value-for-money products. We’re keen to welcome tradesmen and DIY enthusiasts from Ely and the surrounding local areas to our new store.”
