Screwfix to replace product catalogue with digital screens

Screwfix is retiring its physical catalogues after 30 years of production.

Digital screens will be introduced at the hardware store’s outlets across the UK to replace the catalogue.

The new digital screens are able to display Screwfix’s full range of 37,000 products compared with the catalogues which show only 16,000.

John Mewett, chief executive of Screwfix, commented: “Our iconic catalogue has been a huge part a part of our brand identity for the past 30 years, however it only includes a small part of our extensive range and doesn’t reflect our latest prices.”

He added: “In recent years we’ve seen customers increasingly prefer to shop with our app or online and switching to digital screens in store will mean we can provide the same great experience.”

B&Q and Screwfix-owner Kingfisher saw pre-tax profits jump 33 per cent to more than £1 billion last year.

The home improvement giant recorded sales growth of 6.8 per cent compared to 2021, with the company making £13 billion across the group.
