Kirkcaldy High Street welcomes new hardware and DIY store
A new hardware and DIY store opened up on Kirkcaldy High Street yesterday marking another positive step in the right direction for the town centre.
Located in the west end, My Home Tools, offers people in the town the highest quality tools and hardware imported from Poland.
Owned and run by four friends from Kirkcaldy, Wojciech and Joanna Krawczyk, and Maciej and Iwona Wrobel, initially ran the business online, but decided it was time to offer a more personal touch by opening a shop for customers.
Originally Maciej and his wife, Iwona, started the business three years ago, with Wojciech and Joanna joining the team last year.
They wanted a town centre base and secured a unit in the High Street.
Wojciech said: “We both work in Amazon as problem solvers while operating our business online, but wanted to expand and thought what better place to do it than Kirkcaldy High Street.
"We had our grand opening yesterday, and although it was relatively quiet we’re positive that it will become busy when people realise that we are here.
"We offer everything from hand tools, DIY items, hardware, items for the construction trade, and gardening tools – so there is something for everyone.”
Wojciech said that My Home Tools imports its selection of tools from Poland which is famous for its high quality steel.
"They are second to none in terms of quality,” he said. "We are also easily a lot cheaper than any other hardware store in town – we are a one stop shop for all DIY projects and tradesmen and the only specialised hardware store on the High Street.
"We provide our customers with a cheaper way to purchase hardware. If you only need one or two screws for a project you are working on we can supply you with it without having to buy a massive box.”
Wojciech adds that the duo plan to expand and open other new shops in the Kingdom, and that they have big plans for the future.
"We are very excited to now have a place on the High Street. We are already planning to open more shops in Fife – the sky is the limit!
