Johnson Bros. Hardware
Johnson Bros Hardware was first opened in Rydalmere in 1955, by John and Bob Johnson and whilst John and Bob may not work there anymore, the day to day running is left to Johns sons, daughters & grandchildren. It is still very much a family business and they pride themselves on offering excellent customer service.
After a brief move to Freshwater, they opened their store in Avalon in 1957. Moving twice, to accommodate the business growth, the store has spent the last few decades at 49 Avalon Pde, Avalon Beach
In 1989, a second Store was opened at 3 Mona Vale Rd, Mona Vale. This Store went from strength to strength and moved to larger premises in 2003, at 51 Bassett St, Mona Vale.
In October 2008, Johnson Bros Mitre 10 took over operation of Hardwoods Australia and in January 2009 the name was changed to JBH Timbers and Building Supplies incorporating Hardwoods Australia. This name change reflected the increased product range that was now available. To achieve a "One Stop Shop", JBH Timber moved into the same complex as Johnson Bros Mitre 10 in Mona Vale.
The greatest move was still to come, in early 2017 Johnson Bros Mitre 10 Mona Vale moved for the 2nd time to a bigger site. The new site at 73 Basset St, Mona Vale brings JBH Timber & Building supplies as well as the Kitchen department under one roof with Johnson Bros Mitre 10. The site now boasts separate retail and Trade entrances, an undercover drive thru for heavy hardware, an outdoor green life department, an in-store Dulux Trade Store as well as 150+ Parking spots.
With the growth of the JBH trade division, Johnson Bros Hardware opened JBH Fencing & Landscape Supplies in March of 2014. The new site at 1555 Pittwater Rd, Narrabeen further increases the trade value offering of Johnson Bros. to support more than just building supplies.
In 2015 the family bought Harper Timber in Pendle Hill and moved the sales showroom to offer a larger range of building products. In 2016 Harper Timber became a Mitre 10 Trade store, the first in mainland Australia.
