Plumbers merchant Plumb and Parts Center has opened a brand new branch on Anglesey and plans to open 10 new locations within the next year.
Located in Gaerwen, in the centre of Anglesey, the new branch means customers no longer have to cross the Menai Bridge to visit their nearest branch.
The site includes a retail display for everyday essentials and access to products previously not available on the island, such as boilers manufactured by Vokera.
Branch Manager Aled Parry, who previously managed the Bangor branch, said: “Even though there are easy connections to the mainland, it does feel different working on the island. It definitely has its own community feel.”
In total, the opening of the new Anglesey branch has created four jobs. It is the first new site under a project to pinpoint potential locations across the UK where Plumb and Parts Center doesn’t have a presence.
Central operations director Tim Broadhurst confirmed a new Plumb and Parts site in Folkestone, Kent is due to follow in late summer and the merchant has also relocated its branch from Forest Hill in south London to a new site in nearby Sydenham.
“The aim is to open 10 new locations within the next year,” said Broadhurst.
