About Home Care Bolton


Our Story

Established in the 1950’s this small family run business started life as a plumbing supply store, but as customers needs have changed we have naturally evolved into the general DIY supplies and ironmongers we are today. Engraving, Key Cutting and Sharpening services, Watch batteries and strap adjusting were added by popular demand and now we also have the well know Rug Doctor for hire. No matter what the weather decides to do The Homecare Centre is a natural barometer for the changing seasons, just look outside the shop door and Russell will have bedding plants displayed as Spring arrives. Then when you see the snow shovels and sledges hanging up you can be sure it is time to unpack your winter woollies. Russell, John and Derek have a warm and friendly welcome for all our customers, providing them with excellent service and advice where needed. Their years of experience and product knowledge means they often know what you want before you do. The Homecare Centre has been part of the local community since the first day it opened it’s doors. For many of our customers it is the personal service that makes the difference, and we wouldn’t want it any other way. Where else can you go and spend a few pence on nuts and bolt or a few odd size screws and be made to feel so welcome. Come and have a look round, you will be suprised what you find. We are always happy to see new faces and we hope to see yours soon.
