Aladdin's Cave" for all your home and hardware needs

The Beginning in 1971
The Beginning in 1971

The site of the shop was once part of the multi regional homeware and hardware chain called Cato's that had 34 branches mostly in the Middlesex and Surrey region. It was founded by the Cato family who worked tirelessly with little investment to build the company up from a single shop in Chiswick.

Eventually in 1991 the Upper Richmond Road site (one of the smaller branches) in East Sheen was bought by an independent retailer and Catol was born.

Catol went on to establish itself as a well loved feature of the high street with a reputation for warm and friendly service second to none. Following in the footsteps of its predecessor, Cato's.

The extensive range of quality household products and knowledgeable staff that are always happy to help, has resulted in Catol gaining a reputation as the first and only port of call needed to meet all our cutomers needs.
