SEVEN new jobs have been created in Blandford with the opening of its new Toolstation store.

The retailer, which opened in the north Dorset town in May, offers products for local trade and DIY customers.

Store manager Eddy Rimmer-Stokes said: “We are pleased to have opened the new store to help support local tradespeople DIYers and home builders with tools and more in Blandford Forum.

"We recognise the importance of challenging times and our knowledgeable team are committed to providing local customers with a reliable and convenient service for the essentials they need to tackle any task.”

In January, Toolstation introduced its new Trade Credit account to support trade customers.

Signing up for a Trade Credit Account allows customers to buy now and pay later and get the tools and supplies needed for larger jobs.

Toolstation Blandford Forum store is located at Unit 1, Block A, Glenmore Business Park, Wend-Al Road, Blandford Forum, Dorset.
