About Robert Dyas
Robert Dyas has a long and interesting history, which spans as far back as 1872. Robert Dyas himself came over to the UK from Ireland with just 5 pounds to his name, but he used it gradually open up an ironmongery store, which focused on giving the best quality for the lowest prices. This is the one thing which the store has continued with even today, as it continued to grow and introduce new products into its range.
The business grew throughout history and through both World Wars, when warehouses and stores suffered major damage as a result of heavy bombing. Despite this, they expanded their products into mainstream routes, bringing homewares and garden fashions to the masses.
In 2012, the business was bought out and invested in by Dragons’ Den investor Theo Paphitis, who continues to stamp his quality today.
There are now over 95 stores on the High Streets of southern England, and the online store continues to go from strength to strength. There are constant sales and promotions to be found on many items, including electricals, outdoor and garden items, DIY, kitchen housewares, and furniture items.
Robert Dyas offers regular promotions and sales, and these are clearly advertised on the website’s main page. You can find savings in store also, but the best discounts are certainly found online. Delivery is also cheap and efficient, and returns are mostly covered by a 30 days no quibble arrangement.
