More than £800K has been invested in improving the Bury St Edmunds branch of Jewson.

The builders’ merchant has refurbished its Cratfield Road site on the Morton Hall Industrial Estate, changing the layout and enhancing the product offering in the 32,000 square metre building.

The branch now features a dedicated kitchen and bathroom showroom, complete with a wide selection of modern and traditional product ranges and full-working demonstration models. With the newly improved layout, Jewson has also grown its civils and tool hire offering, adding a storage compound for an ever-growing range of equipment.

The addition of Jewson-sister brand Graham, which specialises in plumbing, heating and bathroom supplies, has helped turn it into a one-stop-shop for local tradespeople.

Branch Manager, Kirk Broom commented: “We’ve been serving customers in Bury St Edmunds for 34 years - keeping them stocked up with everything from bricks to tools day in day out. As the only supplier of civils in the area, it’s essential that we have a stock of products readily available.”

“Our newly-designed branch will help to further improve our service and make sure we have all the products our customers need, whether they choose to click and collect or come to see us in branch.”

The investment has also seen staff numbers across both Jewson and Graham branches rise to 28 people.
