Incredible place, smart staff.

You ever hear that Weird Al song about a hardware store? This place is like that. They have everything you could ever need, and it somehow fits into a tiny shop on Cowbridge Road East. It's the TARDIS of hardware stores. What they really have to offer though, is good advice. It's much harder to put a price on that, but in this world of car-salesmen-like hardware sellers there's nothing so valuable as a knowledgeable shopkeeper who's not afraid to tell you when you're going to make a mistake. The prices are fine, the range is great, but all that pales in comparison compared to the level of knowledge and expertise sat behind the counter.

Very helpful family run shop

The husband and wife were so helpful, even though I don't really know what I'm talking about when it comes to diy they made every effort to help me resolve my queries. And the prices are a lot cheaper than any other diy store I've been to.

Would highly recommend to anyone
