Screwfix - price rises - some observations!
Found 2nd Sep 2006
Just a word of warning for Screwfix customers. I have used them for years, but haven't needed anything this year so far. I put together an order yesterday, but mistakenly did it from the Spring 2006 catalogue instead of the current one. After transferring the details to the online order form I was amazed how much the prices had risen between the Spring and Summer catalogues. I was ordering a range of common plumbing consumables. Every single item cost between 15% and 45% more and the whole order cost had increased by 26.5%. Many of the items are now no more expensive in my local B & Q. Just don't assume that Screwfix offer the same value as they have done previously - it's worth comparing other retailers first.
