SAINTS stars Paul Wellens and Tom Makinson attended the official opening of a new hardware store in St Helens.
A Screwfix store opened up for the first time on Roundwood Drive last week, creating 13 jobs locally.
Store manager, Miriam Marshall, said: “We were delighted to have Paul and Tom officially open the new Screwfix store. Saints are extremely established in the local community, so it was great to receive their support for our opening.
“This is our first store in St Helens and will give tradesmen greater access to all the trade essentials they need, which aside from being welcomed by homeowners who rely on the area’s professionals, means they won’t have to travel far to reach their nearest Screwfix store.
“At Screwfix, we pride ourselves on the speed, reliability and convenience of our service and are looking forward to welcoming the tradesmen of St Helens, as well as experienced local DIY-er’s who are also part of our loyal customer base.”
Paul Wellens said: “It was great to be invited to open the new Screwfix store. We wanted to show our support for a new business in the local community and we were delighted that we had the chance to be part of the opening.”
