This week, we opened our new doors to the refurbished shop here at Chandler Material Supplies.

A new entrance to the main shop opens up straight from the yard, with our dedicated teams covering two specialist counters; Building Products, plus Plumbing & Heating. Manning the shop floor are the same approachable, knowledgeable and friendly staff that now have increased counter space, helping to avoid queues during busy periods. There is now direct access to our fixings and ironmongery range, plus our Dulux paint mixing facilities.

Our new increased floor space enables access to more quality products for customers to browse. Navigate through from Building Products to Paint & Decorating Products, on to Plumbing & Heating Products, before heading down the steps to our Bathroom Showroom.


We are happy to announce that we’ll be hosting several suppliers on site on Wednesday 7th March, along with having the Mayor of Chelmsford along to cut the ribbon at 11am. We’re not sure he’s done one with a Stanley knife before!

Special offers available all day… along with free bacon rolls, teas and coffees for customers. What better way to celebrate a hump day? Come along and see the newly refurbished branch, and let us know what you think.
