Metcalfe’s gets new name and makeover

A long- established family-run hardware store is being renamed as part of a modern makeover.

Tring’s FW Metcalfe and Sons, which has been passed down through three generations of the same family, is celebrating its relaunch under the banner of Metcalfe’s Home Hardware on Friday and Saturday.

It will incorporate the recently opened Cook Shop next door in High Street.

Today the business is run by David Metcalfe and his two partners Joanna Lace and Ruth Trimmer.

David said: “Having recently opened the Cook Shop, we felt we needed to promote ourselves and the role we play in the retail community of Tring.

“Home Hardware combines the buying power of over 400 independent members and gives us access to over 18,000 stocked products spanning hardware, DIY, gardening, cookshop and houseware ranges. This means we can ensure that our customers can always expect a variety of quality brands in store, offered at competitive prices.”
