July 15th, 2020
Selco’s 69th branch set to open in Salford

We are delighted to announce our 69th branch in the UK will open in Salford in October.

The new Selco Builders Warehouse will be based on Regent Street and will ensure an exciting new offering is available to local tradespeople.

The opening of the new builders merchant in Salford will bring an economic boost to the local area as we will be creating around 50 jobs.

Howard Luft, chief executive of Selco Builders Warehouse, said the Salford opening remained on track despite the coronavirus outbreak.

He said: “We are delighted to announce the plans are still very much in place for us to open our Salford branch later this year.

“The coronavirus crisis has been an extremely challenging period for the entire country and it’s been no different for us at Selco.

“However, opening up in Salford has been a long-term target and we are determined to achieve that over the coming months.

“We are confident that the branch will be open in October, subject to ongoing developments with coronavirus.

“The branch will also provide a further boost to tradespeople in the area as they will have a greater chance to enjoy the benefits Selco provides – unrivalled availability, with the widest range of products in stock, as well as excellent customer service and trade pricing.”

As well as offering a wide range of products for all tradespeople, Selco’s opening will also ensure there will be a specialist timber merchants in Salford.

The new branch will also serve tradespeople in surrounding areas including:

  • Pendlebury

  • Swinton

  • Eccles

  • Trafford Park

  • Ordsall

The opening will strengthen Selco’s position in the Manchester area where it already has three branches, in Ardwick, Ashton Moss and Baguley, as well as another in Warrington.
