Howarth expands in London
Published: 21 August, 2014
Howarth Timber and Building Supplies has opened a new shop at its South East London base, as the firm continues to expand ahead of its 175th anniversary next year.
The merchant opened the store on Shardeloes Road in the Brockley area of London.
Gary Ford, general manager of Howarth’s London branches, said: “We see this new shop as an Aladdin’s cave – we stock everything from bolts and door handles to jigsaw blades and drill bits. The shop is easily accessible and we hope to serve the surrounding community’s DIY needs, as well as those of our trade customers.
“We have expanded the range of stock we sell by 20% and offer a collection service for customers, as well as responding to customer’s stock requests. This is an exciting time for us and we are delighted at the success we’ve seen at the shop so far.”
