Threave Home Hardware front of store

About us

On 26th August 2000 the late Derek Mitchell opened Threave Home Hardware on King Street Castle Douglas. He always wanted to be Mr Arkwright and funnily enough he adopted the nickname Del Boy, where his wheeling and dealing skills came into their own. Before his sudden death, he passed the family business on to his daughter Michelle Davolls who still runs the shop today. She has a brilliant team of staff behind her who take the shop to new levels. 

Threave Home Hardware prides itself on the personal touch. Having years of experience, the staff have a vast knowledge of the products that they sell. They are happy to give customers tips, demonstrations, and advice, answer any questions that are asked and if they don’t know the answer, they are only happy to find out.

If there are brands within the shop, for example ‘Denby’, and we do not sell the range of products you like, then we will try to get it for you. That’s where the personal touch counts.


Within our store, we are happy to offer some much appreciated services to our customers. These include:

Delivery Service

Ask in-store about our daily delivery routes. Any purchases over £50 entitles you to Free Delivery.

Build Service

We offer to build a range of different products which include Garden Furniture, Garden Equipment, Vacuum Cleaners, Electric Fans and Heaters. We are here to take the stress of building your products.

Shop Pick Up Service

From Coals, Logs and Kindling to bags of Compost and Bark - all you need to do is drive around the back of the shop and we will do the heavy lifting.
