Wrights Home Hardware Newton Stewart store front

About us

Wright's have been open for 25 years serving Newton Stewart and the Machars! We have an upstairs showroom, a hidden gem, which holds our furniture and picture ranges. We like to make sure that all our customers leave with the right product for the job and love to hear them report back that they had completed the project with help and tips from us. Customers can phone in an order and we can deliver on a designated day for that area as we know that shopping can be more difficult for those in rural areas. We have an extensive range of gifts and toys too, and support local lass Lynsey Johnson's distinctive glass art.  Our plastic bag sales go to the not-for-profit charity the Riverside Centre, Newton Stewart.

The Scotland Loves Local campaign is a national initiative designed to encourage all those who live in Scotland to think local first and support their high streets. 

Our small businesses, whether a pub, cafe, tailor, butcher or a grocery shop, are the lifeblood of our Scottish economy. They take risks each and every day to create jobs and prosperity to maintain our way of life. 

Whether it’s a book, or a pint of milk, a night out and a meal, a bedside table or some garden furniture, we’re asking you to take care and think local first.

Original Wrights Prestwick store front

The History of Wright's:
100% home grown in Scotland

Our 1st shop, in Prestwick, was purchased by William Wright, a retired Marine Engineer and native of Glasgow, in 1947. The same year, down at the seafront in Prestwick, Jim Ferguson was born and 15 years later he found himself working for Mr Wright after school. Jim fell in love with the trade and jumped at the chance to buy the business in 1969, aged just 22. He respected what Mr Wright had taught him so much that he kept his mentor’s business name. From that point on Jim worked tirelessly to help independent hardware shops survive and thrive, building up a network of 10 local stores. He was one of the founding members of Home Hardware (Scotland) Ltd in 1983, a buying group that has gone on to become a thriving Ardrossan-based distribution hub, to over 40 family run businesses throughout Scotland and the north of England. Since Jim’s untimely death in 2018, the Ferguson family continue to run the business blending traditional High St values with modern approaches. We strive to support local communities and High Streets from Forres in the north to Hawick in the South. Love Local Today and help your community to thrive!
