About Our Store

Store History

Nibletts has been trading on this site all the way back to 1924.

Starting out as a traditional ironmongers in a single unit, the business has long since expanded into a double fronted unit and into many other areas which include Gardening, Decorating, Fuel & Housewares to become something of an instution in the town of Builth Wells.

Ran proudly by the Evans family from 1961 to 2007, they joined the Mica Cooperative of fellow independent hardware retailers in the late 1990s to enable them to compete on price and produce quality marketing to take on the growing power of out of town ’shed’ retailers.

Twenty years later and overdue retirement, the Evans’ faced the prospect of a difficult decision with no buyer for the business. However after discussions, in a first for the Mica Cooperative it was agreed the business could be sold to their fellow retailers to remain open as a retailer owned cooperative, run day to day by a local manager, thereby securing the store on the high street for the local community and continuing this great Builth Wells asset.
