From humble beginnings back in 1983, Kevin, along his brother Robert, and Mum (Nan) decided to get out of the plumbing industry and thought a hardware store was the way to go.
Starting out with what is now the picture framing shop next door, they quickly out-grew the premises and moved in to the current location in 1985.
Joined by Kevin's son Jarrad in 1988, there were now 3 generations of the Elliott family working in the business until Nan left us in 2002 at the age of 81. Now that's what you call a hard working lady!
Building up the business has had its ups and downs over the years... with the introduction of the GST, we had to drag Kev away from the old push button register and hand written receipts, to a fancy computer system and eftpos.
We are far from your little corner hardware store now, at over 600m2 of floor space we stock hundreds of brands and thousands of products.
We don't have sausage sizzles or workshops every weekend, but we still have whats important... good old fashioned customer service, advice, and the right gear for any job, big or small. Need something we don't stock? just ask and we can get it for you.
We offer free delivery within the local area, and now with our new website we can offer so much more. Shop when it suits you, day or night, and have your supplies delivered to home or site, or collect from store.
Some of our valued suppliers include, Makita, Haymes Paint, Dulux, Worx, EGO at Scarboro Hardware, Macsim, Spear & Jackson, OX Tools, Marshaltown, Baileys, Richgro, Soudal, Recochem and the list goes on.
Thank you for supporting a WA owned and run family business!
Kev, Jarrad, Jenie & Philthy.
