Independent hardware shops are becoming rare as they fight to compete with out of town multiples. Pease of Garforth Ltd is different, it has expanded dramatically since the 1980s and continues to go from strength to strength.
We are a family run business that has been trading in Garforth, Leeds now for over 94 years. The business was founded in 1918 after the first world war and has been passed on through the Pease family ever since. Our present owner, Mr Kevin Pease, acquired the business from his father in the 1980's and has made extensive improvements by expanding it from a small shop on the high street to the large comprehensive store it is now. Existing buildings were renovated and extended and we have now one of the largest independent hardware stores in the north of England. Although the official trade name of our company is Pease of Garforth Ltd, we are known locally as Pease's and have built up a reputation for friendly and helpful customer service, coupled with an excellent range of products at competitive prices.
There are specialists available in all departments, willing to give useful and helpful advice regarding the products stocked - and the range available is enormous.
Customers visit us from a wide area including Lancashire, Humberside, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, and obviously Yorkshire, although we have been known to serve people from as far afield as France, Canada, South Africa, Australia and America. Customers from outside of the UK have made personal visits to us, and as a result we now post a wide range of items worldwide.
