Builders’ Merchant Co Ltd has announced the opening of its second branch, based in Hull.
Due to the increasing level business on the north side of the Humber, the company says it seemed only fitting to locate the first expansion in Sutton Fields Industrial Estate, Hull. Scunthorpe is considered the merchant’s “Mothership”, stocking a huge range of products on a four acre site, and will support the new satellite depots.
Hull is the first of give new regional branches with four more in the planning stage over the next five years, within the company’s strategic plan. It is hoped that the Hull branch and further outlets will offer customers the “Aldi” effect, stocking what customers buy on a day to day basis, with specials coming from the Mothership.
