Homeware Essentials


omeware Essentials is a family run business which was founded in 1996 by Mike Brown, an independent retailer with his own convenience store in Eston, near Middlesbrough.

He, like many retailers felt let down by non-food suppliers who would arrive late and offer badly picked, low quality products, and wholesalers who couldn’t guarantee if, or when they’d be receiving products he relied on to provide for his customers and ultimately his own livelihood. The ambition was to offer sensible prices, respectable products and service that could be relied on – a convenience supplier for convenience stores.

Supplies more than 2,000 lines spanning seasonal, electronic, health and beauty, household, kitchenware, stationery, cards and toys.
