The Original “ONE STOP” Concept
Local people will argue that Jim Hale had already perfected the “One Stop” concept years before the competition did. Not only did he stock “everything” but he advertised it and his reputation for vast stocks travelled far and wide. This “One Stop” service was, and still is, a time saving boon for builders who are able to buy anything and everything they need at the depot quickly, with excellent service and minimum of paperwork.
Availability of stock and competitive prices are high on our list of priorities. But, at Hales, personal attention from our staff is just as important.
We are proud to be a family owned business with a long tradition of good, reliable service. From our beginnings in the early 1900s, we have developed from a small sawmill to a thriving Builders Merchants with modern shops, offices, warehouses and storage yard occupying a 7 acre site in the Forest of Dean.
Come in and experience our “One Stop” service today – you are assured of a warm welcome and our personal attention at all times.
