Built from the ground up

CBL Hardeware, a family run business, is respected and supported by the local community in Ladismith, Western Cape. At the helm is Oom Hennie Smit, who, despite challenging times in the Karoo, made the bold move to build his own retail store and relocate his premises. CBL has been an Essential member for a year, and we applaud his decision to also open a Paint Trend ‘n Trade store to offer paint specialists to his mix. Hennie has embraced the Essential brand, and is a true ambassador in all aspects. We wish CBL Hardeware and Paint Trend ’n Trade success in their new building.
