Alexanders of Markethill is a family owned business and was established in 1954 by husband and wife team, Norman and Iris Alexander.
Norman and Iris Alexander began their business as a hardware store and the first item Norman sold was a bicycle bell. Alexanders stocked everything from buckets and spades to gramophones, gas cylinders, agricultural equipment, fireworks and in fact anything at all.
Iris developed the giftware side of the business, securing prestigious companies like Wedgewood, Waterford Crystal and Villeroy and Boch, while Norman developed the furniture, carpet and bedding departments. The business was handed over to the four children, Suzanne, Johanne, Richard and Jane in 1997 and since then it has continued to grow, adapt and expand.
Alexanders is a trusted, family brand and from day one Alexanders has sought to meet the needs of our loyal customers through providing exceptional service, quality items and an experience like no other.
