Customer Reviews

Very Helpful Staff

I go to Lenehans whenever I need household things I cannot buy in a supermarket.  I was there recently with a small issue I was hoping one of the staff could help resolve and the man I spoke to came up with a simple and cheap solution straight away so I was very pleased.  I was back a week later with another issue and again happened to get the same very helpful man.  His name is Ben based on my last two experiences I would definitely seek him out if I had a particular issue I wanted advice on. -Marian

Top Quality Shop

Fantastic hardware store.   Has most things you’ll need.    A very wide selection of tools and equipment. Great location as well in the middle of town so it’s really easy to get to. Top quality shop. A little bit more expensive than other shops but that’s the price you pay for convenience. 

-Sebastian Ritzen

Large Selection of Items

This shop is quite small, but they actually offer a large choice of items.I found exactly what I was looking for. -Gael Quinio

They are the largest seller of Frenchic Paint and Colourtrend but have expanded to include over 10, 000 in other home needs areas. 

In terms of their hardware and tools section they have adhesives, power tools, security items like locks, lightbulbs and supplies like nails and screws. We like that for each category their selection is very expansive, differing in sizes and mediums.

This is the perfect store to visit if you’re looking for household and renovation supplies.

Their store also offers delivery as well as a “click and collect” service. Both options are great as orders over € 70 have free nationwide delivery and “click and collect” orders have a quick preparation time.
