Ribbon cut on Leyland SDM’s 30th store in Clapham Junction
The Mayor of Wandsworth was the guest of honour when a fast-growing London-based decorating and DIY specialist opened its 30th store.
As Mayor Councillor Richard Field officially opened Leyland SDM’s latest outlet, based on 129 St John’s Hill (SW11 1TD) in Clapham Junction.
The Mayor said the new store was another welcome addition to the local area.
He said: “I’m very pleased to have opened the new store which will bring more jobs and an economic boost to the area.
“I’m sure it will be extremely busy with people from local households coming in to take advantage of the big range of products to do their DIY jobs around their homes.”
