The 3000 sq ft store will specialise in CCTV, security and home automation, Maplin says, and offer leasing of products as well as purchasing. Free same day delivery will be available for Sheffield-based orders over £150, and Maplin’s own in-store experts will also be on hand with free advice for traders, including a professional CCTV installer who will be available to discuss businesses requirements and offer technical advice.

Maplin CEO John Cleland said: “Many of Maplin’s customers work in the home improvement, building and electronics trades; therefore this is an excellent opportunity to raise awareness of the Maplin brand to a wider audience. We’ve employed a new B2B team to really drive this area of the business forward. We’ll be able to offer traders and small businesses specialist equipment, as well as offer expert advice from our knowledgeable ‘Maplineers’.”
