MKM opens 39th branch in Macclesfield

IMG-20120813-00019We have recently opened our 39th branch in Macclesfield on Queen’s Avenue. The opening of the branch, which has generated 14 local jobs, was celebrated with a special event on Monday 13th August and attended by the manager and mascot from Macclesfield Town FC.
The opening was eagerly anticipated by local tradespeople and the public, with some placing orders the week before. On the day, visitors enjoyed free bacon butties, met the MKM Macclesfield team and were entertained by Roary the Lion.

MKM Macclesfield is run by branch Directors Peter Gibson and Rob Dean, who have both spent their whole careers working in the local area. Rob has 27 years of experience and Peter has over 22 years’ experience in the trade, having worked previously at a national builders’ merchant and smaller independent. Peter comments:

“We are delighted to have opened MKM Macclesfield. The response from customers so far has been fantastic and local people now have a choice of which builders’ merchant to use in the area, where previously it has been limited.”

“I made the choice to move to MKM from a national builders’ merchant because I wanted the freedom of running an independent branch. Whilst we are independent, being part of MKM allows us to hold a much higher stock level on-site and offer fantastic deals too. The whole team at MKM Macclesfield are local and highly experienced. This means that we know the area and our customers, so we can offer a top notch, personal service.”

David Kilburn, Executive Chairman of MKM concludes:

“The opening of MKM Macclesfield is an exciting new development for us as we expand our network into the North West. We have been planning the Macclesfield branch for several years so it is fantastic to now be up and running and serving the local community. We have opened two new branches in the UK over the past year as part of our £20M expansion programme and continue to look for opportunities.”
