In February 2020, STARK opened its doors to a whole new and sustainable DIY store in Hørsholm (Denmark), which will make it easier for customers to build sustainably. The store has got a flying start despite Corona and general restrictions in the industry. With electronic price tags, the staff also saves large amounts of time, which instead will be spent on giving customers the necessary advice.
Sustainability is increasingly in demand in more and more places. This also applies to the construction industry, where Denmark's first sustainable DIY store has opened with a good location in Kokkedal Industripark in Hørsholm, close to the main road and motorway. It is the STARK chain that has opened the 5,500 square meters large new DIY store built according to the DGNB standard concerning environmental, social, and economic sustainability.
STARK's focus on sustainability is based on the craftsmen's wishes, as many today see sustainable construction as an advantage. According to Britta K. Stenholt, CEO of STARK Denmark, the idea is that it should give both craftsmen and STARK an advantage at a time when the interest in sustainable construction is increasing.
- Our store in Hørsholm is the epitome of our desire to make it easier for craftsmen to build sustainably. We see this as one of our most important tasks, she says.
