Trade retailer Screwfix will be opening its first store in Rugby and creating 13 new jobs.
The new branch, in Prospect Way, will open on February 19.
Rugby Store Manager Amanda Risker said: “We’ve created 13 brand new vacancies and have employed local people from around the Rugby 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 Rugby Screwfix opening where they can demonstrate their professional skills in a free-to-enter screw drilling competition.
The fastest time wins a 40inch Toshiba smart TV.
Throughout the store’s launch celebration period from Thursday February 19 through the weekend until Sunday February 22, all product ranges will carry a 10 per cent discount, among other store specific special offers.
Leading power tool manufacturer DeWalt, will be at the store demonstrating a range of products from the Screwfix catalogue.
Amanda said the store’s convenient location, plentiful parking and the ability to provide a Click and Collect service within just five 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 Rugby.
“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 Rugby and the surrounding local areas to our new store.”
