Screwfix opened its 800th store this week, and it is in the Cotswolds. 

The shop is located in Bourton Industrial Park and 12 jobs have been created. 

The store was opened with a launch event on Wednesday, with colleagues and senior representatives from Screwfix, including operations and property director, Scott Parsons and managing director for UK and Ireland, Max Britten.

At the launch, Scott Parsons said: “We know how busy our customers are and how important it is to find a Screwfix store close to site. 

"We’re delighted to open our new store Bourton-on-the-Water today and bring Screwfix even closer to local tradespeople in Gloucestershire.”

Store manager, Taf Flack, said: “I’m really excited to be overseeing Screwfix in Bourton-on-the-Water with a brand-new team that will include part-time and full-time members of staff. 

"We’re looking forward to welcoming local tradespeople through the doors, to help them get their jobs done quickly, affordably and right first time.”

The new store has been equipped with air source heat pumps to provide heating, powered by electricity instead of gas. 

Scott added: “We are committed to minimising our environmental impact, helping to create a better future for our customers, colleagues, communities, and the planet."
