About Dalzells of Markethill

Established for more than 50 years, Dalzells are the largest independent Home Appliance Retailer in Northern Ireland

Established for more than 50 years, Dalzells are the largest independent Home Appliance Retailer in Northern Ireland with more than 7,000 Kitchen Appliances, Multifuel Stoves, Gas Fires and TVs in stock.

Dalzell's of Markethill were established in 1956 at what is known commonly as The Square in the market town of Markethill in Co. Armagh by the legendary Noel Dalzell and his quick witted wife Evelyn as a household furnisher. Business wasn't easy at first and in the opening week Noel had barely sold a stick of furniture and had taken the sum of 15'6 , the equivalent of 80 Pence in today's money and it seemed likely that the venture would meet an early end. Saturday came and late that afternoon a Mr Richardson and his new wife arrived at the store and purchased furniture and homewares to meet all the needs of their new home in just a few hours.

From these humble beginnings and through ample hard work, keen minds and an innate ability to communicate with customers they laid the foundations for rapid expansion and they were soon moved purchased extensive new premises on Main Street which is still our location today. There they extended their business to agricultural supplies and they growing market that was home appliances. Indeed such was the growth of home appliances that Dalzells were soon the official wholesalers for leading brands like Electrolux and Servis. They even began importing premium appliance brands such as Smeg from Italy to Ireland for the first time as their sole distributor.

The generations in the business have changed today with Trevor, Noel and Evelyn's son at the helm but the solid traditions of good retail practices that has helped build the business and which were also part of its original logo are as strong now as they were then - Quality, Value, Service
