Enjoying a reputation for providing a quality service, having friendly staff and knowledgeable owners the store has survived profitably for many a year.

Now for sale for the first time in its history, this hardware store offers the new owner a tremendous chance to impose their own style on a very solid foundation.


The store faces onto the busy High St and has a large glass window and entrance porch to show off a selection of the wares for sale. With an internal sales area of c1500sq ft in a rectangular shape, there is in addition adequate storage to the rear with an office offering a further c 250 sq ft. To the side of the building is a separate storage room again measuring c 250sq ft. There are two rows of gondolas and several spinners to maximise the number of lines for sale. At the rear, before the office, is a large open area for the display of larger items.
