For anyone who missed my moaning about Screwfix price rises in the other post I thought I would just post this tip if you are looking to buy DIY items. Screwfix prices have risen my a large amount between the Spring and Summer catalogues, over 31% on my plumbing and other consumables order, and they have also added an extra £6 'remote area' delivery charge for most of Scotland. Thanks to Mike T I tried Toolstation. My order came to just over £70 with Screwfix, but for identical products (both companies offer a similar range) the Toolstation order came to just under £52, a saving of over 25%. In addition Toolstation's minimum order value for free delivery is just £40, instead of £45 with Screwfix, and there is no surcharge for 'remote areas'. Hope this helps.
