To ease the stress of emergency Christmas callouts, Plumb Parts and Drain Center is extending its opening hours even further this year.

Branches will be open from 7:30 to 17:00 on 23 and 28 December, and from 8:00 until 12:00 on 24, 27, 29, 30 and 31 December. The only days branches will close completely will be Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Day, and the 2 January bank holiday.

However, customers will be able to check local branch stock, prices and order at any time over the festive period via their online accounts as well as being able to contact the customer support centre rather than going in to branch.

Gary Hitchens, customer service director for Plumb, Parts and Drain Center, said: “Having a merchant you can rely on is one of the most important aids to get through the festive period and we want customers to be reassured that they can pick up the parts they need, when the need them. As well as being the most open we’ve ever been at this time of year, we’ve also got 200 of the most in-demand parts in stock in every branch for off-the-shelf collection.”
