TOOL and building supplies merchant Toolstation is set to open a new store in Gwent, it has been revealed.

The nationwide chain, which already has stores in Newport, Cwmbran, Caerphilly, Chepstow and Blackwood, is set to open another branch in the region – expanding into Abergavenny.

It has been confirmed that the new store is set to open on Monday, September 20.

What’s more, it is set to create seven new jobs in the region – and provides a place for other local businesses and traders to purchase their essentials.

The new store is located at Unit 13 on Mill Street Industrial Estate, and comes as part of the company’s ongoing, UK-wide expansion plans.

What can customers expect?

According to bosses at the company, “Toolstation offers a wide range of leading brands and trade quality products at great prices in store and online”.

Staff at the Abergavenny store are also said to be fully able to offer customers “expert advice and reliable service”.
