McLaughlin’s Hardware shop has served the local community for over a century. We are now on the lookout for a new buyer to carry forward our rich legacy of community service and commitment. After an impressive 110 years under the ownership of the same family, the store is officially up for sale.
Recent news of the business being placed on the market has generated significant interest and sentiment among locals who have fond memories of shopping at the store. Most recently the Mark Patterson Show on BBC Radio Foyle recorded its afternoon show live from the shop and featured many friends, customers and local businesses who regaled stories of how the shop has been woven into the fabric of their lives over many generations.
The current owners, brothers Laim, Dessie and Seamus McLaughlin, expressed their gratitude to the community for the support they have received throughout the years. “The business has been a success throughout many challenging times with the loyalty and support of our customers and local businesses. It is with mixed emotions that we take the decision to sell, but we are confident that a new owner with a passion for community service will nurture the relationships we’ve built and continue to allow the business to thrive for many generations to come.”
The building itself is situated at 40-44 William Street, a very busy street in Derry’s city centre with approx 8,535 sq ft of retail and storage space spread over three floors.
As McLaughlin’s Hardware embarks on this new chapter, the search is on for an individual or group that shares the family’s values and vision. The opportunity to preserve and build upon the legacy of the business is now open to those who recognise the importance of community connections and wish to contribute to the vibrant history of the city.
