The foundations of Robert Dyas’ success began over 140 years ago with £5. That’s how much Robert Dyas had to invest when he emigrated from County Meath in Ireland. Robert Dyas set up his first shop in London in 1872 and by the time he died, he had established a strong family business with 18 stores.

Today, Robert Dyas is a modern and innovative retailer who strive to provide the very best in ironmongery, DIY and household items.

With over 95 stores spread across the South of England and our online shop, we use our product knowledge, range, heritage and excellent customer service to continue to grow upon the vision that Robert Dyas instilled over a century ago.
