Our history

Topline Connollys is a family owned, family run business. We have enjoyed serving the Bagenalstown community for six generations. We began as a small general merchants on Main Street and as our customers’ needs changed, we adapted and grew with them.

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.

The local community

We show our appreciation to the community for this ongoing support by engaging in fundraising efforts and supporting local charities, events schools and clubs.

We also hold cooking and equipment demonstrations, and organise expert guest speakers for our customers to enjoy. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for future events.

The local Topline Connollys staff represent another strong link to our community.

The Topline group

Becoming part of Ireland’s largest DIY buying group, Topline, has been a crucial element to the success of our business. Alongside the other 150 plus stores nationwide that are affiliated to the Topline group, we benefit from its bulk purchasing power, from 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 Connollys to compete successfully with, domestic and international chains, such as Chadwicks, Heiton Buckley, Woodies, B&Q and Homebase; and offer our customers outstanding prices, exceptional friendly service, and a welcoming shopping environment.
