Selco Brings Cheltenham Tradespeople Christmas CheerNews
Posted by: electime 8th December 2022
Selco Builders Warehouse has delivered an end-of-year boost to tradespeople by opening its 74th branch in the UK.
The leading builders merchant has officially cut the ribbon on its Cheltenham branch to further bolster its presence in the South West.
The new branch, based on Festival Trade Park in Runnings Road, comes hot on the heels of the opening of Selco’s Exeter store in April.
Howard Luft, Selco’s chief executive, said: “We are delighted to extend the Selco offering into yet another new town in the UK.
“Our two Bristol branches gave us a footprint in the South West but we have expanded in that region throughout 2022, firstly with Exeter and now Cheltenham.
“As a genuine multi-channel builders merchant, we want to offer as many tradespeople the chance to access Selco, either through our branches or our ever-expanding number of digital services.”
The official launch of the Cheltenham branch saw Selco continue its commitment to supporting the local communities in which it operates by donating £3,000 to good causes.
Through its Community Heroes scheme open to groups and organisations in and around Cheltenham, Selco awarded £1,000 to a local school – Prestbury St Mary’s Federation – to fund the purchase of new books for infant and junior school pupils.
In addition, it committed £2,000 to its nominated charity Cancer Research UK.
The official opening also saw Cheltenham Town Football Club manager and captain – Wade Elliott and Sean Long – in attendance. Selco is an official partner of the League One club.
With hundreds of trade brands always in stock, Selco’s UK branches are firmly focused on helping tradespeople complete their jobs as quickly and effectively as possible.
As well as offering trade services, Selco also has a strong digital presence including Click & Deliver and Click & Collect services and a new app to make life as convenient as possible for tradespeople.
