About us

We are a traditional and friendly tool store dedicated to offering everyday household and garden products suitable for keen DIYers, avid bakers and even the handy builder. With over 50,000 products in store and online, customers can find the bits and bobs they may need. And if there is something they can’t find, they just let us know and we can order in what you they are looking for.

Selection of franchisees is a critical aspect of the company’s growth plan. Whilst there will be slight local and regional variances to ensure that local market conditions are correctly approached, Clive, the founder of the business, remains firmly at the helm as Managing Director of both the company that owns and operates the three core shops and also of the franchise business. He will therefore ensure that the Arkwright’s model is accurately replicated nationally.

Why us?

Like many franchises, the Arkwright’s franchise opportunity is all about taking control of that all important work-life balance. However, it is also about allowing you to build a profitable business that can be either run hands-on as a single unit or a multi-site management franchise.

As demonstrated by the original Harrogate store, as well as the additional sites in Leeds, by following some simple steps it is easy to create a high turnover and high profit margin retail business that generates ongoing profits and value for the franchise partners.

The Arkwright’s franchise is easy to operate and, whilst we anticipate that many franchisees may have an interest in DIY, there is no particular technical skill needed to own and operate an Arkwright’s shop.
