Topline Ward’s has all the essentials!

As one of Roscommon town’s major employers and an essential business, Topline Ward’s has remained open throughout the current Level 5 restrictions.

The business is located on the Circular Road, and is run by John and James Ward while their brother, Michael, manages JJ Ward’s shop on Goff Street.

John told the Roscommon People earlier this week that while there have been ups and downs this year due to the pandemic, business in general has been good.

“We opened for Christmas in 2014 and it’s been very successful so far. We have seen some ups and downs during the lockdown earlier this year but other than that we are doing well.

“We employ 18 staff here on the Circular Road and we stock a wide variety of DIY and hardware goods as well as household products, plumbing accessories, farming supplies and a wide range of fuels,” John said.

Topline Ward’s also boasts a vast array of power and hand tools and fixings. During lockdown gardening equipment and paint and décor supplies have also proven to be big sellers with local shoppers.

At the moment, the shop is decorated with Christmas decorations of all kinds. If you want to go big with the festive cheer this year then Ward’s has you covered!

The #RoscommonTogether campaign has been welcomed by John and James and the rest of the staff at Ward’s. John believes Roscommon is a good town in which to do business and encourages people to shop local.

“There are a variety of shops in Roscommon town and easy access to those shops. The free parking is essential and it is less stressful for shoppers here than it would be in other towns,” he said.

John was also quick to pay tribute to those who have kept their shopping trips local this year.

“We’re very thankful to our staff and our customers for supporting us throughout the year. We have seen different generations from the same family shopping with us over the years and it’s something we hope continues long into the future!”

Topline Ward’s is open from 9 am to 6 pm Monday to Saturday and offers a wide range of services including delivery, key cutting, paint mixing, and gift-wrapping. Staff will also carry your purchases to your car and free quotations are available.
