Our first shop was established in 1982 in a small corner shop opposite Peckham Rye Park in Dulwich supplying mainly D.I.Y. goods. Two years later we bought our premises in Portland Road, South Norwood, N&C Home Improvements which had a yard so we expanded our range of supplies to include building materials, bought a tipper lorry and employed a full time delivery driver. Looking to offer a complete floor to ceiling one-stop shop for all home improvements we acquired Purley DIY in 1986.
This was a DIY shop with a limited kitchen and bathroom planning and design service. Twenty years on we have three sites with large showrooms supplying everything including tiles, natural stone and specialist bathroom flooring. Our ambition to provide the one-stop shop has been achieved, and we have remained a family business throughout. In fact we have brought more members of the family into the fold, bringing in young blood to keep the oldies up to date with the latest technologies demanded by our customers.
