TRADE retailer Screwfix has opened its third store in Colchester, at Severalls Industrial Park.

The store has created 11 jobs and is part of the company’s ongoing expansion plans.

Matt Fisher, area manager, said: “We’ve created 11 jobs and have employed people from around the Colchester area.

“Our new team includes people of all ages and levels of experience. The most important requirement is that they have the right attitude and can offer superb customer service.”

Matt said the store’s convenient location and the ability to provide a Click and Collect service within five minutes of ordering will be a real bonus to local traders.

He said: “I’m confident we’ve got a great location. My team and I have already been out and about getting to know local businesses and tradesmen and we’ve been really pleased with how supportive everybody has been.”
