About G-W-Doling & Son
Originally the business sold hardware and ironmongery items, with a heavy chandlery section added during the 1920's to service ships in Barrow docks. During the 1960's as home ownership with gardens increased, a machinery department and workshops were introduced.
Today we operate from four sites within the town centre. Our main site is 128 Buccleugh Street with hardware and housewares on the ground floor, marine chandlery and spare parts on the first floor. Our Workshop and kayak display sites are all within 75 yards of Buccleugh Street.
Customer care is our top priority, with computerised stock control, computerised spare parts control, and a large modern workshop equipped with manufacturers special tool and diagnostic equipment. The workshop also features a Dynamometer to tune outboard motors under full working load conditions.
We operate a delivery service for local customers throughout the Furness penninsula and South Cumbria.
