The location for a new hardware store in Congleton has been confirmed.

Four months after they confirmed to Congleton Nub News that they would be coming to the town, national building suppliers Screwfix have confirmed what was a well known rumour around town.

The trade tool stockists will be moving into the former Aldi store just off the Mountbatten Way roundabout.

The site has been vacant since November 2021, when Aldi closed to leave Congleton with just one Aldi store.

While no opening date for the Screwfix store has been confirmed, a spokesperson told Congleton Nub News the following.

"We are delighted to bring Screwfix closer to even more customers and look forward to welcoming busy tradespeople to our new store in Congleton this summer," they said.

"As we continue to grow our store network we will announce details about each new store, including planned dates for opening, in due course."

"Not only will this bring Screwfix's convenience and extensive product range closer to hard-working tradespeople, but will also create 14 new jobs for local people."

Currently, the nearest Screwfix stores to Congleton are in Holmes Chapel and Macclesfield.

The new store has already started hiring, with Retail Supervisor roles promising up to £10.70 an hour.
