Kingfisher UK, TradePoint
A new trade offer called TradePoint will be rolled out across all larger B&Q UK stores in 2010. TradePoint combines Screwfix's know how and specialist trade brands with the convenience of B&Q's store location and long opening hours. It is specifically designed for trade customers, with over 12,000 trade-only products available, including bricks and blocks, paint, kitchens and bathrooms, plumbing, electrical, tools and fixings. TradePoint will be open seven days a week, up to 15 hours a day with guaranteed stock availability, fast service and competitive prices. As a joint initiative between B&Q and Screwfix, TradePoint is a good example of Kingfisher's businesses working more closely together.
