The Company

We are modern retailers who are curious and interested in the new. We scour the world for the latest products and nifty solutions that make homemaking easier, we are not interested in the flimsy or throwaway. For us, new products must be enduring as well as innovative. Modern homes can be pretty demanding. There are always a million and one things that need adding, doing or fixing. We run our business as shopkeepers, not just shops, offering the new, the rare and the necessary with the helpful advice and guidance our customers need. Robert Dyas was bought in July 2012 by Theo Paphitis, one of the former investors on TV's Dragons' Den. Since then, the company has shown improved year-on-year results and driven a programme of investments.
