About Us

Who we are

The team of more than 40 staff at Topline Beattys has a wealth of experience and product knowledge. Over half of the staff members are working in Topline Beattys for 15 years or more. As you can see from the photos on the left, we have specialists in each department who complement each other to ensure that we can help and assist you.

What we do

Topline Beattys has two separate locations in Loughrea, Co. Galway. The Station Road premises is a fully stocked builders’ merchant with plumbing, bathroom, timber flooring, and hire departments as well as a complete range of agricultural feeds and fertiliser. The Main Street/Church Street premises is a 15,000 square feet retail outlet stocking an extensive range in each of the following departments: housewares, interior furnishing, electrical, DIY, toys, paint, and gardening. We endeavour to stock many interesting and unique products, especially in the housewares and interior furnishing departments. If you’re looking for something different, we have it.

Our history

Family run for three generations, Topline Beattys celebrated its 80th anniversary in 2011; having first opened our doors in 1931. We began trading as a small grocery, hardware and grain store on Church Street, Loughrea. Our longevity can be primarily attributed to the ongoing support of the local community and our staff’s dedication to providing exceptional advice, value and service to our valued customers.

The local community

We show our appreciation to the Loughrea community for this ongoing support by engaging in fundraising efforts, and we regularly host fun events for our customers. In 2013 we organised a Shave or Dye event where 35 people either shaved off or dyed their hair on the night in Topline Beattys, raising more than €10,000 for the Irish Cancer Society.

The Topline group

Becoming part of Ireland’s largest DIY buying group, Topline, in 1978, has been a crucial support to the survival and success of our business. Alongside the other 150 plus stores nationwide that are affiliated to the Topline group, we benefit from its bulk purchasing power, its relationship with the world’s largest independent hardware group, Ace Hardware, and from its ongoing investments in marketing, staff training and merchandising. Collectively, these factors allow Topline Beattys to compete effectively with domestic and international chains like Chadwicks, Heiton Buckley, Woodies, B&Q and Homebase; and to offer our customers competitive prices, better service and a welcoming shopping experience. Everyone in Topline Beattys is working hard every day to ensure we are around for another 80 years to serve our customers.
