We are located on the main street of Crinkle.

Our history

Tom Hassett established Crinkle Merchants nearly 40 years ago beside his house in Crinkle, Birr. The business developed and he moved the shop to a new premises on the Main Street in Crinkle. John Guinan joined him five years later and still works there today. John Hassett starting running the business in 2000 and expanded the shop with the help of the Topline group. In 2006 we established a second shop in Banagher, Co. Offaly. In the middle of the recent economic recession, we doubled the size of both the Birr and the Banagher shops. This is thanks to the continuing loyalty and support of our valued customers.

The local community

We are proud of the heritage in our local community and to support numerous local clubs, schools and charities.

The Topline group

As part of the Topline group, the largest DIY buying group in Ireland, we benefit from the bulk purchasing power of more than 150 associated stores nationwide. Together we strive to source the best products and the most competitive pricing so we may pass that value onto our customers.
