Toolstation has opened its Yate store today.

The opening of the new store, located on Stover Industrial Estate, has created seven jobs.

It is the latest store opening as part of Toolstation’s expansion plan to roll out 60 more stores across the UK by the end of the year.

Today also sees the launch of their new catalogue, with a range of new brands and products at great prices in store and online.

The store will operate a 1m social distancing policy. A staff member will monitor the door and queuing system, and all colleagues will be provided with PPE.

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

"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 Yate will be open seven days a week, from 7am to 8pm Monday to Friday, 7am to 7pm Saturday and 9am to 4pm Sundays.

Toolstation Yate is located at Unit B2, Stover Industrial Estate, Millbrook Road, Yate, BS37 5PB.
