Islands Home Hardware is holding a three-day event to celebrate its 25th anniversary.

From Thursday May 19th until Saturday May 21st, the Hugh Town store will have special offers on various lines and two customers per day will win a £50 gift voucher.


Owner Julia Day told Scilly Now & Then: "Home hardware bosses are coming over for the Thursday, Friday and Saturday. They didn’t understand that their Saturday happens on a Thursday here. 


"They were going to come for Friday and Saturday but I told them they’d miss the big day! It’s got to be a Thursday because that’s when everyone’s shopping."


Julia and husband Michael took over the shop in 1989, joining the Home Hardware collective in 2001. There has been a hardware store on Garrison Lane since the 1930s.


Home Hardware is a dealer owned wholesaler, the largest voluntary organisation of its kind in the UK for independently owned hardware and DIY stores.
