About us

Family run for three generations, Beattys celebrated its 80thanniversary in 2011; having first opened our doors in 1931. We began trading as a small grocery, hardware and grain store on Church Street, Loughrea. Our longevity can be primarily attributed to the ongoing support of the local community and our staff’s dedication to providing exceptional advice, value and service to our valued customers

The team of more than 40 staff at Beattys has a wealth of experience and product knowledge. Over half of the staff members are working in Beattys for 15 years or more.

Our Stores

Beattys has two separate locations in Loughrea, Co. Galway. The Station Road premises is a fully stocked builders’ merchant with plumbing, bathroom, timber flooring, and hire departments as well as a complete range of agricultural feeds and fertiliser. The Main Street/Church Street premises is a 15,000 square feet retail outlet stocking an extensive range in each of the following departments: housewares, interior furnishing, electrical, DIY, toys, paint, and gardening. To ensure we have the best prices possible, we are part of 3 buying groups, Topline hardware, Euronics electrical and Toymaster. We endeavour to stock many interesting and unique products, especially in the housewares and interior furnishing departments. If you’re looking for something different, we have it.

Local Community

We show our appreciation to the Loughrea community for this ongoing support by engaging in fundraising efforts, and we regularly host fun events for our customers. In 2013 we organised a Shave or Dye event where 35 people either shaved off or dyed their hair on the night in Beattys, raising more than €10,000 for the Irish Cancer Society.
