Based in the Outer Hebrides on the Isle of Lewis, Home Improvement Centre is a family owned shop in the heart of Stornoway, located just 200m from the ferry terminal and 400m from Stornoway bus station.   Run by siblings, Yvonne and Innes Mackay, the shop, established in 1981, has evolved from a builders merchant into a vibrant store catering for the whole community.  You will find everything from gift ideas, homewares, paint and tiles, to powertools, timber and gardening products in store.

If you can't find what you are looking for, or need advice, please ask our friendly, experienced and knowledgeable staff.
