TWO house­hold names are set­ting up shops in the bor­ough, cre­at­ing more than 60 jobs.

De­signer dis­count gi­ant TK Maxx is putting the fin­ish­ing touches to its new store in the bor­ough, which will cre­ate 50 jobs.

The 15,000sqft store in Vic­to­ria Road, South Ruis­lip, is set to open on Thurs­day, Septem­ber 18 in Ruis­lip Re­tail Park.

Store man­ager Jeevs Thi­lakan said: “We are very ex­cited to be open­ing up the new store and bring­ing South Ruis­lip shop­pers big sav­ings on all their favourite brands.”

The new store joins the ones al­ready in Hayes and Uxbridge.

Mean­while, Screw­fix is to of­fi­cially open in Uxbridge in the same week, cre­at­ing 12 new jobs.

Screw­fix trade tools and sup­plies shop opened at the end of Au­gust but will hold a cel­e­bra­tory launch week­end be­tween Thurs­day, Septem­ber 18 and Sun­day, Septem­ber 21.

Uxbridge store man­ager Steven Love­lock said he was proud the new branch was help­ing re­duce un­em­ploy­ment in the area.

He said: “We have cre­ated 12 brand new va­can­cies and have em­ployed lo­cal peo­ple from in and around Uxbridge.

“Our new team in­cludes peo­ple of all ages and lev­els of ex­pe­ri­ence, but the most im­por­tant re­quire­ment is that they have the right at­ti­tude and can of­fer su­perb cus­tomer ser­vice.”

Trades­men and DIY en­thu­si­asts are in­vited to the new branch, in Trade City Business Park, Cow­ley Mill Road, dur­ing the launch week­end to take part in a screw drilling com­pe­ti­tion, when one lucky per­son will win a 40in Toshiba flat screen TV.

The store will pro­vide a ‘click and col­lect’ ser­vice within five min­utes of or­der­ing and Mr Love­lock ex­pects it to be a hit with trades­men and DIY-ers.

He said: “I’m con­fi­dent that we’ve got a great lo­ca­tion in Uxbridge. My team and I have al­ready been out and about get­ting to know busi­nesses and trades­men and we’ve all been struck by how friendly ev­ery­one has been.”

The launch week­end will in­clude prod­uct ranges at a 10 per cent dis­count and other spe­cial of­fers.
