Starting out in his garage in 1982, David sold school books and office supplies to the locality from the back of his van. In order to get the stock in time for the customers, late night trips to Dublin were the norm for the initial few years. A shop became available in Mitchell Street, Dungarvan and this became the first official home for the business. During this time, David’s trusty sidekick Michael Drummy came on board and they have not looked back since. The premises at 41 Lower Main Street came on the market in 1988 which David and his wife Ursula acquired and this has been home ever since.
In 2002 the premises next door at 40 Lower Main Street was acquired which allowed the business to expand and provide more products for customers particular office and art supplies. The shop was remodelled further, moving the shop out the back of the premises making the shop much easier to navigate around. There still was not enough room for all that we can supply so 42 Lower Main Street was acquired and the shop was upgraded even further into what we see today. This allowed us to focus a lot more on providing art and craft supplies in a wide and varied range to our customers.
