Newcastle based building materials merchant, J T Dove has opened new wholesale and retail premises on the Hotspur Court industrial estate in Alnwick.
J T Dove specialises in supplying building materials and plumbing supplies, mainly to the trade and has taken three units of around 9,000 sq foot in total with the creation of eight new jobs. This is the company's 15th retail outlet in the North.
“We are delighted to have attracted a North East company with such a strong brand to the town,” says Michael O’Driscoll of Northumberland Estates. “J T Dove has taken a ten year lease on the site at Hotspur Court. This demonstrates the long term commitment they are making to the town, and we wish them every success in their new venture.”
“We have been considering Alnwick for a while,” explains Steve Robinson, Managing Director of J T Dove. “We already have a good customer base in the area, and by opening a store, we will be better able to service these customers. We plan to provide a collection point and delivery service for on-line customers too. An increasing amount of our trade starts with our web site, where we provide a full price list. Customers can therefore source goods and check prices before ordering and will be able to collect from the store or have them delivered direct.”
J T Dove is the latest in an impressive list of well established businesses committing to take space from Northumberland Estates in the town. Hotspur Court Industrial estate, where J T Dove is located is becoming a hub for DIY and building supplies in the town with kitchen and bedroom furniture suppliers, Charlesworth Interiors, also recently taking space as their business expands.
