This Boxing Day, we are offering free delivery on orders of £300 or more to postcodes within our standard 2Man coverage areas. This generous offer from Worktop Express is available from now until Tuesday 16th January 2018, so you have three whole weeks to save up to £85!

All of the items in our collection are eligible for this offer, so if you have been considering any of our solid wood, laminate or Earthstone worktops, there has never been a better time to buy. Saving is incredibly easy – you simply need to add the items you require to your shopping cart and when the eligible products in it reach a total of £300 or more, the cost of delivery will be deducted from your order. If you would prefer to order via one of our showrooms or over the telephone or sales@worktop-express.co.uk, you can still save – just mention the promotion to the sales advisor who is assisting with your purchase.

This year has been a busy one for us with over 150,000 worktops delivered in 2017 (so far!). At Worktop Express, we have made a number of changes throughout the year to improve our processes to ensure we are providing the best service we can to you, our customers.

We launched two new worktop showrooms in 2017, our Birmingham showroom in Smethwick and our Glasgow showroom – the first Worktop Express in Scotland! If you are thinking of visiting us over the festive period, please be sure to check our Christmas opening hours before you do.

Merry Christmas from Worktop Express!
