A new Screwfix store has officially opened in Dinnington.
The branch at Bentley Business Park, Church Lane, which opened its doors for the first time on 5th February, had hundreds of visitors on the first weekend.
The opening is part of the company’s nationwide store expansion plan, which saw the retailer open 60 new UK stores in 2014 with a further 50 to be added in 2015.
Screwfix’s Dinnington store manager, Julie Ambler, said: “We chose to open a new store in Dinnington because it’s a growing town with a great trade presence. Many of our customers may have already shopped with us at our Rotherham store and are delighted to see us here, as they no longer have to travel so far.”
“Our celebration period, which ran from Thursday 5th February and throughout the weekend until Sunday 8th February, 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.”
The Crossing Church and Centre, a charity which provides support services to community groups in the area, received a cheque for £500 from The Screwfix Foundation, as part of their nationwide stores initiative. The money will go towards repairing and resurfacing the flooring in the community hall.
Manager at The Crossing Church and Centre, Anne Taylor, said: “We are so grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these essential funds to the charity. This will help to provide a safer environment for all that use the community hall and we’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising.”
