About Us

BAILEYS – Established in business for over 40 years.

The modern buildings that we now run our business from are a far cry from the small wooden building that it started in over 40 years ago.

The Bailey family opened for business in our home town of Abergavenny in 1971, buying, selling and repairing used cars on the outskirts of the town. We sold a bit of petrol but nothing compared to what we sell today from our modern, multi-pump, BP forecourt.

In December 2012 we acquired the DIY business located directly behind our petrol station in Abergavenny together with their satellite store within an outlet store near Ross-on-Wye.

We soon outgrew our space in Ross-on-Wye so when given the opportunity to move to larger premises nearby we jumped at the chance and we opened the doors of or new store in August 2013.

Our huge new premises has really given the opportunity to expand our range, so much so that the name Baileys DIY probably doesn’t describe us accurately any more – of course we still sell everything that you’d expect to find in a traditional hardware store with the addition of everything for home and garden, pet and animal food, equestrian, painting and decorating, electrical, storage solutions….. the list is endless and constantly growing.

We’re proud to still be a family owned and run business and, after all, it’s our name above the door.

It’s our pleasure to be of service.
