History - A True Family Business
In its early years Arthur managed to keep his business going by continuing his electrical contracting business and helping his staff (1 person) as and when required. In fact this was a real family concern; his Nephew Craig was managing the day to day running while wife Mary, Son David and Mother Myra would help out at weekends and holidays.
As the business gradually grew Arthur began to look for alternative premises and in 1997 he moved the shop to its current location at 10 Front Street. There the business remained gradually growing and expanding its many stock lines until it became necessary to lease the rear building behind for stock storage and ultimately to become the successful garden and Christmas departments of A McGee.
In September 2005 Arthur decided to pass the business on to his son David and 2009 saw further growth as Unit 2, 10 Front Street was acquired, enabling us to move our garden shop and Christmas department right next door to our main shop at Unit 4. This period of sustained growth saw further developments when in April 2012 Unit 1 became available, enabling us to split our business between Units 1 and 4 at 10 Front Street.
The new shop at Unit 1 became the focus for our housewares and cookshop leaving Unit 4 to concentrate on DIY and gardening.
Our ever successful Christmas department is now housed in Unit 1 from October to December.
