Builders Merchants, Newport

Covid-19 Update 18th April 2020 

We are now able to advise that we will are partially reopen operating with skeleton staff so we can work safely within the government workplace guidelines. The wellbeing of our dedicated staff is paramount, and you can rest assured that measures are in place to safeguard our employees and ensure social distancing and hygiene guidelines are adhered to. With this in mind we please ask you to respect our policies and not to attempt to visit our premises without prior arrangement.

Initially we will be open 8am - 3pm Monday to Friday (closed bank holidays) for trade customers only. Please note that our trade counter will remain closed and there is no access into our yard. We will be offering limited pre-arranged contactless collections and deliveries. Please email us any enquiries to with a list of materials required and a contact telephone number. We are receiving a lot of enquiries but we will come back to you as soon as possible. Due to the volume of calls being received, we will not be taking any orders by telephone and our voicemail is not being monitored. We will try our best to accommodate your requirements, but many materials are on extended lead times due to some suppliers still being closed or working at reduced capacity.

We thank you for your patience, understanding and support. Together we will get through these difficult times and again we send to you our best wishes to you and your families. We will constantly be reviewing the situation & hope to be fully functional as soon as is safe to do.

Many thanks and stay safe.

Mike and Christine

    Let Us Introduce Ourselves

J & A Phillips is a local, family owned and run Independent builders' merchants that has been established 35 years. Our doors were first opened as a small DIY shop on Corporation Road, Newport in 1983 by John and Anne Phillips. Due to their hard work and commitment, the business really took off and after a few years they moved to a larger premises on Granville Lane. After trading here for nearly 30 years, we moved from our beloved shop on the 5th February 2018 to Maesglas in order for us to stock more products and be more productive for our customers. Anne is still heavily involved with the business but the general day to day running is with her daughter, Christine and son in law, Mike.

We pride ourselves on being able to provide a good, old fashioned, personal service to our trade and DIY customers that you just don't get from the larger companies. Many of our staff have worked here for over 20 years. During that time they have developed a lot of knowledge and experience. That allows us to be speedy and efficient with our regular trade customers whilst having plenty of time to offer advice and support to people embarking on a bit of DIY.
