A leading builders merchant in Croydon is marking 20 years of trading this week with its longest serving customers and staff at the heart of the celebrations.

The Selco Builders Warehouse branch on Mitcham Road first opened its doors in 2003 and is still going strong today, serving hundreds of local tradespeople every day.

A week of celebrations are planned at the branch including trade days with key suppliers, a customer darts tournament and a bake sale and raffle in aid of Cancer Research UK, Selco’s nominated charity for the year.

Some of the customers who have been trading with Selco throughout the two decades will attend a special celebration breakfast on Friday and receive a bottle of champagne.

Paul White, branch manager of Selco Croydon for the last 18 months, said: “We are proud to have been an established part of the Croydon community over the last 20 years.

“A lot of our customers use our branch multiple times a week, as well as other Selco branches in the local area, so we have built up strong relationships with many of them over the years.

“We wanted to make them a big part of the celebrations and we will have a number of our longest-serving customers joining us on Friday, while we had a special event for colleagues who started at Selco Croydon on the opening day and are still with the company now.

“It’s been a fantastic 20 years and we are already looking forward to the next 20 as we provide tradespeople with the most convenient solution possible to meet their every day working needs.”

With hundreds of trade brands always in stock, Selco’s 75 UK branches are firmly focused on helping tradespeople complete their jobs as quickly and effectively as possible.

As well as offering trade services, Selco also has a strong digital presence including Click & Deliver and Click & Collect services and a new app – as well as a ‘Dial & Deliver’ telephone service – to make life as convenient as possible for tradespeople.
