Local builders’ merchants Kenning’s Building Supplies have launched a new eCommerce website this week, enabling trade customers and members of the public to place orders and take delivery from all over the East Riding.
Traditionally a retail-only business, previously if a customer was further afield than the Goole & Gilberdyke sites they could only place an order over the phone. Now the new website will offer a more seamless and efficient transaction for both the customer and for the Kenning’s staff.
Mr Gawthorp (picture attached) was lucky enough to be the first customer through the checkout on Monday, bagging himself a celebratory bottle of champagne. He said “I found the website through Google, it was really easy to place my order and delivery was the next day! I will definitely use the website again, although I do like to call or drop in if I need advice on my building project”
The increase in orders has resulted in 11 new jobs being created, which is great news for the local community following the pandemic.
Kenning’s Building Supplies are independent builders’ merchants based in Goole. Founded from humble beginnings in 1986, it now has three sites with two retail stores providing building and DIY supplies to trade customers and the public across The East Riding and beyond.
Sean Bond, operations manager at Kenning’s said: “It’s an exciting time for us and we are proud that our new ecommerce website has now been launched, making our products more accessible to trade and public customers across the East Riding”
