GSF opens third new branch of the year

GSF Car Parts has opened its second new branch this month, third of the year, in Walsall.

It joins new sites in Wembley and Sunderland as the brand looks to aggressively expand across the UK following its much-publicised takeover last year.

In total, the brand has a network of more than 180 branches; by 2025 it has plans to grow this to more than 200 across the UK.

The Walsall site joins nearby locations in Cannock and Wolverhampton. The parts supplier said its new Walsall branch “allows GSF to increase connectivity across the Black Country, offering faster deliveries for more customers than ever”.

The branch is led by branch manager Daniel Green, who has been with GSF for seven years and has lived in the area all his life.

“This is an area that hasn’t had its own GSF branch before, so it’s brilliant that we’re able to service customers here much more efficiently than we were previously,” said Green.

“We can get to garages with deliveries as quickly as 30 minutes thanks to the location of the store. We’re just five minutes from Walsall town centre and we’re also well placed to service Darlaston and Wednesbury, where we know there are many workshops that we can support, so we’re in a great position to hit the ground running.”

Sales and operations director Paul Wright said: “GSF has already got a fantastic reputation in the West Midlands and we’re thrilled to bring our high levels of service and availability to even more customers in the area as we supercharge our branch network.

“Our Walsall team are already well known locally and customers will quickly find that they’re a highly knowledgeable bunch with decades of experience in the industry who will get them the parts they need first time, every time as soon as they need them.”
