The rapid expansion of London’s leading decorating and DIY specialist business will continue this month with the opening of its seventh new store of 2021.
Leyland SDM will open its 31st store when it cuts the ribbon on its Dulwich premises on Monday, October 25.
The new store will be based at 113 – 115 Lordship Lane (SE22 8HU) and will provide a welcome boost to the local economy.
It follows on from the opening of new stores in Acton, Tooting, Cricklewood, Fulham North, Greenford and Clapham Junction already this year.
Customers will be given a special 10 per cent discount off all purchases during the opening week of trading.
Jonathan Jennings, Chief Executive of Leyland SDM, said: “It’s been an exceptional year of growth for the business, particularly when you consider it against the backdrop of the pandemic.
“Dulwich has been on our radar as a potential destination for a store and it’s extremely pleasing to get the formalities out of the way and to start looking forward to the opening.
“It’s in a fantastic location and will be great news for both trade professionals and people carrying out DIY jobs in their homes.
“The home improvement boom which began during lockdown shows no sign of slowing down so we are confident of a high level of interest in our new store.
“Everyone visiting can benefit from the expert DIY knowledge of our colleagues and first-class service, including home delivery if required.”
The Dulwich store will create new local jobs, forming part of a wider recruitment campaign with more than 50 vacancies currently available across all London stores.
Cliff Rendell, HR Director for Leyland SDM, said: “The rapid business expansion has provided dozens of new job opportunities across London. We are delighted to be playing our part in helping the capital recover from the pandemic by providing genuine career opportunities for London people.”
The Dulwich store will stock a comprehensive range of thousands of products across all departments, including paint and decorating essentials, building materials, electrical fittings, tools, plumbing equipment, ironmongery and much more, all under one roof.
Leyland SDM has grown to become one of the most recognisable and trusted decorating and DIY companies in central London with stores in prominent locations across the city.
Some of the biggest and best-known DIY brands are available at Leyland SDM, including Farrow & Ball, Tesa, Bahco, Bosch, Purdy, Dulux Trade, Leyland Trade, Stanley, Ronseal and DEWALT.
