These new stores represent the delivery of the Builders expansion strategy which will continue throughout the year. Builders had reached the halfway mark and there are still more stores which will open up.
These new Builders stores will stock a range of products and building materials specific to their location and customer base, including services such as paint mixing; board, glass and key cutting; and financial services. Builders has also added a value-added services offering across all their South Africa stores.
