About Us

The Carnoustie Fobel Shop continues to be one of those rare things a good hardware store.

Having taken over the Fobel Shop from Peter burke on the 1st of December 2014, Kenny and June are keen to keep up the previous owners good work along with Fiona who worked along side Peter. Two new members of staff, Sandra and Sheena, have also joined Fobels. The five of us will do our utmost to find what you need. And if it’s not one of our 45,000 stock items we can try and order it for you.

Household help?
Bring in broken lamps and other small electrical items and we will fix them if we can. If not there’s a good selection of goods on offer to replace them. With the Fobel Shop being an early member of Angus Council’s Reputable Trader Scheme, you can rely on a job well done and we won’t charge the earth. We can even help organise a special order if there is something specific you require that’s hard to find.

There’s everything here you might need, from paints, tools and glue to nuts and bolts. As we sell bolts and screws singly or in very small packs never again will you have to buy a packet of 30. We’re all experienced at DIY so if you need any hints or tips for a job you’re doing, just pop in and we’ll be happy to help.

If you’re looking for a flexible monthly account just say the word and we’ll arrange to set one up for you.

The shop is a hub of the community and handles tickets for the Dibble Tree Theatre, the Musical Society, Carnoustie Gala, and Charity events. Read more about our Community Activities.

People think that small, local, stores are more expensive. That’s definitely not the case here; save yourself time and money. Don’t go all the way into Dundee – TRY FOBEL FIRST!
