MKM Building Supplies has arrived in the Scottish town of Galashiels, creating 13 jobs with the opening of its 45th branch.
The new branch will house MKM’s acclaimed product portfolio, catering to trades as well as the general public. This will include building, plumbing, joinery, heating, insulation and plasterboard offerings, as well as underground drainage.
MKM Galashiels will contain a timber and joinery service, as well as state-of-the-art kitchen and bathroom showrooms, overseen by experienced design specialists. The addition of high-spec showrooms has been hugely popular across the branch network, and is helping to secure MKM’s position within the interior design market.
The branch launch will be celebrated with a series of events and competitions. As well as free bacon butties during the launch fortnight, those spending over £1,000 in-branch will have the opportunity to win a cement mixer or DeWalt Combi Drill set.
Bob Hogarth, branch director at the Netherdale Industrial Estate site, said: “The team here are delighted to have the opportunity to show everyone in Galashiels and the surrounding area what MKM is all about.
“MKM has developed a reputation for championing the customer experience and we are all thrilled to have to chance to bring that to this area. We’re excited to be at the forefront of MKM’s national expansion.”
