What we do
Bradys is a fully stocked builders’ merchants, and also stocks paint, stoves, gardening products, housewares, tools, small electrical appliances, bathroom accessories, and fuel. We also offer useful services such as key cutting, paint mixing, and a very prompt delivery service.
Bradys is a third generation family run business. We celebrated our 75th Anniversary in 2012. The business began as a grocery and hardware store in Mountainlodge, Co. Cavan, which sold everything from Cavan Cola to beds, fireplaces, glass, timber, slates - you name it, we sold it! Leonard moved to Virginia in 1990 after building a purpose built store on the outskirts of the town. Following his untimely passing in 2000, his son and daughter took over running the business. Over the years the business developed and grew, expanding into paint, housewares, key cutting and gardening.
Thanks to the ongoing support of the local and wider community, and our staff’s dedication to providing excellent advice, value and service; we are over 75 years in business and hope to be here for another 75!
The local community
We have a sponsorship budget every year with which we support local groups and charities such as the GAA club, soccer club, rugby club, schools, and Virginia Cancer Care which has affected us personally.
The Topline group
Leonard had the foresight to join the Topline group in 1999, seeing it as a crucial support to the survival and success of the business. Along with the other 150 independent member stores nationwide, we benefit from the group’s bulk purchasing power and access to a wider variety of suppliers, thus allowing us to source products and competitive pricing to meet all our customers’ requirements.
We also benefit from Topline’s ongoing investment in marketing and merchandising. All of this allows us to compete effectively with national and international chain stores.
