YEOVIL, England, March 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
With 2011 bringing some of the coldest snaps on record, and predications indicating another bitter spell around the corner, Screwfix is reporting a rise in demand across its range of brand-leading workwear as tradesmen stock up to ensure they can 'keep warm and carry on' when the mercury drops, avoiding any business cold fronts.
Professionals of all trades rely on Screwfix's extensive range of workwear and personal protective equipment to provide a professional appearance and a safe working environment, but are now increasingly turning to the trade supplier's collections of trousers, fleeces, jackets, gloves and footwear to protect themselves from the Great British winter weather.
The UK climate continues to be as volatile as ever, but this unpredictability is not leaving tradesmen out in the cold - with Screwfix's 'Click, Collect & Go' service, they can check online or on their mobile that the clothing item they require is in stock, and then collect just 15 minutes later from their local branch ensuring they stay warm, safe and keep working through any last-minute temperature plunges. Convenience is key and has been witnessed by the Screwfix branch teams, with customers buying warm jackets and new boots and then walking out of a branch and on to site wearing their new purchases.
Screwfix has over 1300 dedicated clothing products from renowned brands including DeWalt, Dickies, CAT, Snickers, Scruffs and Helly Hansen boasting tough designs and extreme materials that wouldn't look out of place in a specialist sports or ski shop, bringing performance benefits that make the clothing work as hard as Screwfix customers do.
Screwfix workwear buyer Susan Spence comments:
"It is vitally important for our customers to stay one step ahead in the current climate, which is why everything we do is designed with convenience in mind, helping them make the most of every minute of their working day. Witnessing such a pick-up in our winter workwear products highlights just how tradesmen are trying to keep ahead of the weather game, come rain, sleet or shine."
