“Our aim is to give great career opportunities to people, while allowing them to extend their skillset at the Warehouse company.
“This opening will also provide another boost to tradesmen in and around the Croydon area, as they will be able to enjoy the benefits Selco provides – unrivalled availability, with the widest range of products in stock, as well as excellent customer service and straight trade pricing.”
The Imperial Way store will supply the essentials needed when building a house or carrying out refurbishments, including doors, windows, insulation, roofing, heating, plumbing supplies, lighting, electrical products, kitchens, bathrooms and timber.
