Toolstation already has strong ties with football; sponsoring both the Toolstation Western and Northern Counties East Leagues and it is a longstanding supporter of ‘grass roots’ football. The Soccer AM show will feature the Toolstation sponsorship during the live show on Saturday mornings as well as on demand, Sky Go and across the dedicated Sky Sports website.

This sponsorship deal coincides with Toolstation’s continuing branch expansion programme. The 200th branch, which recently opened in Newton Abbot, is the fourth to open in Devon extending the company’s presence in the South West. The expansion programme is set to see 210 branches trading in the UK by the end of the year. The growth has meant that the overall increase in the number of employees in branch is now over 1,400 nationwide.

Toolstation has also recently launched the new, same day Click & Collect service, enabling customers to go online, search and buy products and collect in their chosen branch just an hour later. What’s more, Toolstation has updated their mobile platform with the introduction of PayPal to make purchasing easier for customers.
