W Hurst & Son was started by Charles Wheeler in 1859 as a foundry concentrating on agricultural implement manufacture, servicing and repair for the Island’s booming farming industry. In 1886 we moved to 33 Holyrood Street in Newport where our flagship hardware store is located. Although we have remained true to our roots as an ironmongers, we've gradually expanded our product range over the years to follow the current trends. We now stock products relating to lighting, chinaware, glassware, housewares and gardening & outdoor living to name just a few. We are involved in many community organisations as well as raising money for different local charities. Voted Local Business of the Year 2022


Su manager from Newport Hurst

 My name is Su and I am the manager of our Newport branch which is Hurst's largest store, it is also where our head office is based.

For the past 6 years I have been the manager at Newport and in the time seen many changes, throughout these changes we are still lucky to have our regular customers popping in.  Which is great for a store this size that we have the chance to get to know our customers and they have the confidence in ourselves that we will help them the best we can.  

I started over 30 years ago within our Freshwater branch as a Sales Assistant and have worked my way through to the position i hold now.

My passion is animals, especially dogs.  We are a dog friendly store and I often have treats ready for our customers faithful friends.

Take a look and give me a hello when you see me.
