Electrical store TJ Butler to return to Shotton

A FAMILY-RUN electrical store is returning to its Shotton roots.

Butler’s is re-opening its doors in Chester Road West next month – four years after the business moved out of town to concentrate on the main showroom in Hawarden.

Managing director, Warren Butler, announced the store would re-open after Christmas, with the creation of two jobs.

The new store is being refurbished and refitted to display and demonstrate the latest range of 3D TVs, home entertainment systems and Apple computers.

The firm’s chairman, David Butler, said: “We will still be keeping our main showroom and service centre on the Hawarden Industrial Estate, but having a high street shop in Deeside will enable us to better meet the needs of our customers in Shotton and Connah’s Quay.

“There has been much adverse publicity about the demise of Shotton as a trading centre, but at Butler’s we are still firmly committed to the people of Deeside and are very pleased to be able to play our small part in revitalising the high street in Shotton.”

Butlers has traded in Shotton since 1932, when Warren’s grandfather and company founder T J Butler opened a small shop at the top of Bridge Street to recharge customers’ batteries.
