Peters Timber & Hardware was founded by Peter Berry in 1989. Originally starting in St Kilda and moving to New Street Brighton in the early 90's, Peter aimed and succeeded in servicing the inner bayside area. In late 1993, having just left university, Peter Broderick approached Peter Berry for a position. They have had a unique bond since.
Winding the clock forward to May 2004, the opportunity arrived for the Peters to purchase the Caulfield business. The two Peters, and their families, have been operating the business ever since. Peter Berry announced his retirement in May 2013 after 25 years in the organisation.
Peters Timber & Hardware has seen significant change and improvement made over that time. It is notable for its many longstanding staff members, who are an important part of its success. Being greeted by a friendly face is a cornerstone of the business. Today, in its Brighton and Caulfield locations, Peters Timber & Hardware operates as a Mitre 10 store which in itself brings many benefits to the local community, through its diverse ranging, competitive process, quality advice and friendly service.
