“As we reach this milestone for Screwfix, I want to thank our staff and, of course our customers. Our success relies on their success, so we remain as committed as ever to making things easier for them.”
The retailer’s expansion continues, and Screwfix plans to have a network of around 600 stores in the next couple of years.
