"Thorpes is my go to place for anything hardware related and a staple of Gosforth Highstreet. My family have a saying that if Thorpes don’t have it no one does! Needed help finding a very small, non-standard Allen key to open something, and the gentleman who helped me couldn’t find the size I needed but did spend a good 10 minutes trying various other tools to get open the small box I was trying to open. Thank you so much Thorpes!"

"I have literally lost count of the number of times I've visited Thorpes thinking 'there is no way they will have this' yet every time they come up trumps. From the rubber tap attachment to the magnifying glass/light combo - really random stuff. If you don't see it just ask. Fabulous attentive friendly staff who are really happy to help too. Top marks."
