A NEW Toolstation store is opening in Minehead next week.

Customers will be able to pick up a range of tools and DIY supplies at the store in Rainbow Way from Monday, February 22.

The new store has created seven jobs in the area and will be open seven days a week, from 7am to 8pm on Monday to Friday, 7am to 7pm on Saturday and 9am to 4pm on Sunday.

Store manager Connor Deverill said: “We are pleased to be opening the new store and supporting local tradespeople DIYers and home builders with tools and more in Minehead.

"We recognise the importance of challenging times and our knowledgeable team are committed to providing local customers with a reliable and convenient service for the essentials they need to tackle any task.”

Toolstation offers a wide range of leading brands and trade quality products in store and online.

Its multi-channel service means customers can buy the essentials they need from stores directly or at toolstation.com through their click & collect service, with most products available within five minutes after purchase.

The store team is also on hand with expert advice and reliable service.

The safety and well-being of Toolstation’s colleagues, customers and communities remains the firm's top priority and stores operate with clear social distancing guidelines with a dedicated colleague monitoring the door and queuing system, and all colleagues will be provided with PPE.

In line with government guidelines, as an essential retailer of tools, DIY and hardware and a key part of the supply chain for the construction industry, all Toolstation stores are open across the UK to provide trade and retail customers with the products they need.

Last month, Toolstation introduced its new Trade Credit account and Catalogue 87 as part of its continued commitment to further support its trade customers. It comes at a time when almost half of tradespeople admit to being worried about the impact of the pandemic and one in five are concerned about cash flow difficulties.

Toolstation Minehead store is located at Unit 1 & 2, Rainbow Way, Minehead, TA24 6DF. Visit the Toolstation website at www.toolstation.com for more details.
