Our History

Family run for five generations, Topline McCrearys celebrated its 155th anniversary in 2015. Since first opening the doors in 1860, the store has been owned and operated by the McCreary family of Crossroads. We began as a small hardware store and builders merchants on the Main Street, where we remained until moving to a new super store 200yds down the road 2015. Our longevity can be attributed to the ongoing support of the local community and our staff’s dedication to providing exceptional advice, value and service to our valued customers.

The Local Community

The Topline McCrearys staff represents another strong link to our local community; for example our longest serving staff member is Killygordon local, Mary McMenamin, who is impressively now entering her 41st year with the company, congratulations Mary.

A Member of the Topline Group

Becoming part of Ireland’s largest DIY/Building Materials buying group, Topline, in 1979, has been crucial to the survival and success of our business. Alongside the other 165 stores nationwide that are affiliated to the Topline group, we benefit from its bulk purchasing power, its relationship with the world’s largest independent hardware group, Ace Hardware; and from its ongoing investments in marketing, staff training, and merchandising. Collectively, these factors allow Topline McCrearys to compete effectively with domestic and international chains, like Chadwicks, Heiton Buckley, Woodies, B&Q and Homebase; and offer our customers competitive prices, better friendly service, and a welcoming shopping environment. 

Everyone in Topline McCrearys is working hard every day to ensure we are around for another 155 years to serve our customers.
