About Topline

With over 160 affiliated stores nationwide, we are at the heart of local communities.

We are the largest DIY/Building Materials buying group in Ireland, with over 90 affiliated members who independently own and operate more than 160 stores nationwide. These businesses, many family owned, are local and loyal - like it ought to be.

While others have become too large and impersonal, at Topline our members strive to remain locally embedded and relevant – true to their heritage. Whether it’s a visit to our oldest member – J.McCreary & Son, Killygordon, Co. Donegal, serving customers since 1826 or our newest store – Topline Murtaghs in Glasthule, Co. Dublin, serving customers since 2014, it should be a friendly and worthwhile experience, just like visiting a good neighbour.

Our history

Founded in 1975 by a small group of hardware merchants struggling to compete with larger competitors, Topline changed the DIY/Building Materials landscape by allowing independent merchants to purchase products at the lowest possible prices.

The benefits of bulk buying at group level – more than €250,000,000 worth in 2013 alone – enables our members to pass on competitive prices to their trade and non-trade customers.

Our vision

"To deliver purchasing, sales, marketing and supply chain expertise so that local entrepreneurs can deliver great value to local customers."

In the age of retail chains, including many of international origin, the Topline group understands that customers still value quality products, expert advice and exceptional service, with all this delivered at a competitive price.

Our contribution

€250,000,000 of products sourced* means we:

  • Support local employment
  • Support local entrepreneurs
  • Support Irish suppliers
  • Support local communities
  • Deliver for customers
