Arco, the UK’s leading safety company, has chosen to relocate its Watford Safety Store to new premises on the Blueprint Industrial Park, two minutes away from its previous location on Colonial Way. The Safety Store will continue to serve the trade community of the area including its thousands of Trade Direct customers that currently use the membership scheme.
The new store offers 2,000 of Arco’s most popular safety products already in stock and ready for customers to try before they buy. It offers a range of personal protective equipment, workwear and workplace safety equipment from all the biggest and trusted brands like TROJAN, Snickers, Regatta, Berghaus, Puma, DeWALT, MASCOT, CAT and lots more.
Alternatively, customers can use Arco’s click and collect service to fulfil their orders, at their convenience, from extensive product ranges available online. The store also offers small bespoke training sessions for customers, and features a Face Fit Testing room, where customers will be able to have their safety masks face fit tested to ensure that it provides the necessary respiratory protection, before purchase.
During their opening week, 18th – 23rd July, customers benefit from a range of special offers. On their day of launch, 18th July, Arco offered 40% off everything in-store, and 20% off everything for rest of the week. The Arco Clothing Centre will be on-site during the launch, fulfilling small quantity embroidery requests, along with MASCOT Workwear, Snickers, Pulsar and CAT representatives offering their expert workwear advice.
In a bid to raise awareness of the importance of hard hat safety, Arco are also offering a helmet recycling scheme in partnership with YES recycling and MSA. As part of Arco’s commitment to health and safety and following a recent campaign to educate workers on the dangers of ‘out of date’ hard hats, the first 50 customers that bring their old hat, will receive an MSA V-Gard 520 Unvented Reduced-Peak Safety Helmet, worth £12.27, free of charge.
Paul Frewin, Divisional Director of Regions & Retail, said: “The new Watford Safety Store will offer customers the best possible selection of products and services with our own in store experts available to offer advice and training. We are confident that local businesses will benefit from the new location within the busy industrial estate, due to the improved accessibility and convenience to neighbouring stores.”
