The staff at McKennas have worked with us for many years, with the current team clocking up a cumulative 1,000 years of experience! Our team lives in and around Listowel, Co. Kerry and know most of our customers by name. Their vast product knowledge is used every day to help our customers to get the best advice and product most suited to their requirements. Please feel free to contact any our departmental specialists on the left for help completing your task or project. Everyone in McKennas works hard every day to ensure we are around for another 150 years to serve our customers.
McKennas is part of the Topline Group as well as the Expert Electrical Group, which enables us to benefit from their bulk purchasing power as well as ongoing investments in marketing, staff training, and merchandising.
Collectively, these factors allow McKennas to offer our customers competitive prices and a welcoming shopping environment. We continuously keep up to date with current trends in retailing and product development and source different products to stock in our business.
The McKenna family, with the current management representing the fourth generation, started trading at 3 Market Street, Listowel in 1871, adding number 5 in 1912 and number 1 in 1962. These three fine premises have been extended and integrated into each other to form a comfortable shop. In 1993 McKennas relocated to a new purpose built Builders’ Merchants on the John B. Keane Road, where we provide for all the building requirements of tradesmen, farmers and householders. Our longevity can be primarily 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.
