A Retford man who “always dreamed” of owning a DIY shop has taken the plunge and opened his own business in the town.

Russ Smith opened Retford DIY Supplied Ltd with his cousin Karen Temple this month. Based on Cobwell Road, the store is open seven days a week.

Russ and Karen offer a wood cutting service, camping equipment, tools, painting and decorating items and lots more in their small shop.

Russ said: “It has been my dream for the last 18 months to open my own DIY shop and give the people of Retford what they have been asking for, without having to travel to Worksop. There is parking at the front so there is no need for customers to go into town.”
