Building trades retailer Screwfix is to open a store in Valleybridge Road, Clacton, on Thursday, creating 13 new jobs.
Store manager Ian Stanley said: “We’ve have employed local people from around the Clacton-on-Sea area.
“Our new team includes people of all ages and levels of experience, but the most important requirement is that they have the right attitude and can offer superb customer service.
“Everyone here is really looking forward to the store opening.”
The new branch is part of ongoing expansion plans at Screwfix, part of the Kingfisher group which also includes the consumer-facing B&Q chain.
Mr Stanley believes that the store’s convenient location, plentiful parking and the ability to provide a “Click and Collect” service within just five minutes of ordering will be of benefit to local tradesmen and DIY enthusiasts.
“I’m confident that we’ve got a great location here in Clacton-on-Sea. My team and I have already been out and about getting to know local businesses and tradesmen and we’ve all been struck by how friendly everyone has been,” he added.
