Screwfix opens first store in France

Screwfix has opened its first physical store in Wattrelos, near Lille in France, following the opening of its French online site in 2021.

The store follows the same model as the British counterparts, with plans for two other stores in the North of France in the coming months.

Ranges have been adapted for the French market and an advertising campaign has been launched to promote the brand more widely in the country.
