With over 50 years experience in the industry, this family-run company has expanded greatly. What started with a £10 family loan to its founder, Jack Tasker, Taskers has now become one of the UK’s leading and most innovative independent home stores.
In the early days Taskers traded out of a number of small outlets in Liverpool, and offered joinery and shopfitting services alongside traditional hardware products, expanding their service to their loyal customers. The retail side of the business was a growing success and the core product range in Hardware rapidly expanded with the onset of the DIY phenomenon in the 60’s. Taskers DIY placed itself firmly on the map.
In more recent years the introduction of the home furnishings and accessories ranges have provided a natural extension to the Taskers offering, the home and furnishing ranges have grown enormously from just a few key pieces to a complete home selection from fantastic brands such as Halo, Willis & Gambier, Tetrad, Nolte, Tempur, Stressless, Sleepeeze, Alstons and Parker Knoll.
Today the company employs over 300 staff in a total of 18 departments. With three huge retail sites in the Liverpool, Merseyside area in Wavertree, Aintree and our new Hunts Cross Store opened in November 2015 all with over 60,000 products, incorporated into 18 departments its easy to see how Taskers remain at the forefront of the industry.
