A national tool hire company has opened the doors to a new store in South Tyneside.
HSS Hire now has a branch in South Shields after setting up at Unit 2B on the Western Approach Trade Centre, South Shields.
The firm offers customers equipment and tools to hire in order to get work done.
The opening of the South Shields branch is part of the company’s commitment to open 50 new local stores across the country throughout 2015.
Emma Cooper, manager at the new South Shields branch, said: “We’re excited to be opening the doors at our brand new store in South Shields.
“The new branch will help us support the many fantastic local businesses in South Tyneside, and offers a convenient solution for DIY customers.
“The store is designed and built in a format that’s very easy to browse, and stocks our most popular tools and equipment.
“We also offer an overnight delivery service, so we can get anything a customer needs that’s not already in South Shields for the next day.
“We’re looking forward to getting to know our new customers.”
Visitors to the new branch will be able to browse the range of tools and equipment available for hire in the store, rather than having to flick through a catalogue.
Equipment and tools available for hire include those aiding work in landscape and gardening, heating, painting and decorating, lighting and power and carpet cleaning.
To celebrate the opening of the new store, customers are being offered a half-price discount on first hires from the South Shields branch.
The offer runs until January 31. Customers wanting to take advantage of the offer are asked to quote the code PRES5891 when ordering.
The new branch is open Monday to Friday between 7.30am and 5.30pm and Saturdays 8am until 1pm.
