The little shop that has everything.
Pextons has been serving its local community since 1933. First opened as a bicycle repair shop, Pextons later branched out to offer hardware, paint, housewares and key-cutting to a loyal customer-base in the Bishopthorpe Road area of York. Customers from further afield have also discovered this gem of a shop, told their friends and keep coming back.
Pextons operates an extremely busy key cutting service, having become known for our low prices, wide-selection of key blanks, high accuracy and commitment to an honest service.
As well as being part of a thriving parade of shops in a residential area, Pextons is close to green spaces in the form of allotments and gardens; we cater to this by offering a wide-range of compost, plant food, pest repellants, hose accessories and more.
Patronised by tradesmen, families, DIY enthusiasts, tourists and students alike; Pextons has a practical range of sand, plaster and cement as well as planed and pressure-treated timber. We stock a wide range of mouldings such as dowel, laundry airer laths, architrave and dado rail.
Due to the local area being mixed in housing style, Pextons has to keep a very wide range of stock; from the perfect letterbox for a period Victorian terrace to mailboxes for modern apartments. From Windolene cream to the popular Hagesan 'Mould Spray'.
Pextons is also home to the "Great Glass Cabinet of Gadgetry" - popular mostly with boys - of all ages! In it can be found Zippos, LED Lenser torches, swiss army knives and Leatherman multitools. Perfect for birthday/Christmas gifts.
Our range caters to these credit crunched times and many of our sales are down to people wanting to make-do and mend what they have (wood glue to superglue, Milliput to creeping crack cure, electrical components and much more) rather than replacing things unnecessarily. So if you've got a problem and you'd like a fix-it solution please give us a call or drop us an email and we'll see what we can rustle up!
By shopping online with us you're supporting a small, independent, family business which pays its taxes and provides local jobs!
