Smith’s Electrical, one of Halesowen’s longest running businesses has undergone a huge makeover. Store owners Mike and Lorraine Smith embarked on the project after the store had remained the same for 15 years. “It was time for a change” commented Lorraine.
“We wanted to make the place brighter, more modern and more attractive for our regulars along with attracting new business.” added Mike.
The store is unrecognisable from its previous layout. It now looks more spacious and unveils some of the original features of the building.
“We’ve raised the ceiling to open up the space and when we did it unveiled one of the original beams. We reckon this dates back to the 1850’s!” explained Lorraine.
Smith’s Electrical Halesowen, has been a mainstay of the high street since the mid 60’s. The business first began trading inside the indoor market before moving to their current premises around 15 years ago.
It’s clear that the couple are firm favourites with their customers. In the short time halesowentowncentre.co.uk was in the shop enquiring about the store upgrades more than a dozen people came through the door and greeted Lorraine and Mike like old friends. It was wonderful to see local people supporting a local business.
Smith’s Electrical stocks all manner of products, including watch batteries, clocks, light bulbs, kitchen appliances, extension cords, plugs and much more…
So next time you’re in Halesowen drop in, see the new layout and don’t forget to say hi to this wonderful couple.
