When Coogan hardware closed their premises in Rathdrum a few weeks back it was seen as a blow to the town. However, John Doyle seen an opportunity and he seized it with both hands.
With plenty of experience at hand, John spotted an opening and Trade Electric was born. The shop, situated in the Railway Business Park offers a wide variety of services.

It will also offer a full chain saw and lawn mover repair service and a welding service. As John explains: ” if we don’t have what you are looking for we will be more than happy to order it in for you, at trade express your the boss”.
