    Free tea for all. Not just for lightbulb changers and soil pipe bandits.

    Catalogue is easier to read. Too many "inserts" in the Screwfix one.

    Less weekend warriors asking to see a million different screws before purchasing

    I’ve never understood why puddles and sparks have there own vip area in screwfix :mad:
  3. Would that be for the Gardeners.

    It’s so when sparks argue bout which reg is relevant to queueing they don’t get in the way of other customers

    I presume it is so when Rogue Traders want to film a cowboy they know where to go?

    "I am just off to get a part madam, its a difficult one to source too unfortunately"

    "Has someone been fiddling with this boiler?"

    "I know its working ok, but it just doesnt meet the updated regs"

    "Sadly its the lack of an upstairs earth that is causing this outdoor socket to not work correctly. Now I have touched it I will have to bring it up to regs"

    Items mainly in stock.

    Staff that understand products.

    Click and collect that means that, not having to wait in a queue defeating the object of click and collect.

    And many more things, that have stopped me from using SF anymore.
