    The ethos of the businesses in Wellingtonbridge is to provide the best mix of merchandise available at the best value to our customers. We achieve this from being part of national buying groups for economies of scale whilst supporting local producers of meat and vegetables to offer unequalled quality. In addition, Wallace’s six businesses offer local employment opportunities and we continually strive to improve all aspects of our business including, but not limited to, excellence in customer service levels.– Joe Wallace

    About Us

    Wallace’s is a family run third generation retail Company with five individual businesses situated in Wellingtonbridge, Co. Wexford. It is headed up by Joseph Wallace, alongside his sister Chrissie Harpur, brother Willie and wives Joan and Mary with Ian Jones as the General Manager.

    The Company was started by Joseph’s father and his three brothers, Matthew, Paddy and Simon who bought the original premises in Wellingtonbridge in 1945 from Simon O’Dwyer. At this time there was only a pub and post office in the village, owned and operated by John Curran and his sister Nellie.

    When Wallace Brothers started trading in Wellingtonbridge in 1945, the last shells of World War 2 were being fired across Europe. At the time they opened a ‘Providers’ stocking hardware, drapery, meat and groceries all under one roof. In almost 75 years the business has grown almost beyond recognition, now taking in six businesses on four sites around the village.

    The one thing that has stayed the same down the years is Wallaces commitment to bringing the best value to our customers; in all our shops. At 35,000 sq.ft., the HomeValue Hardware & Garden Centre is Wallace’s biggest outlet bringing colour and choice to customers all year round. You can find a real A-Z in the hardware, from Animal baskets to Zone-specific Wood pellet stoves! The garden centre is a riot of colour all year round and our housewares stock everything you could think of for your home, and even a few you haven’t thought of yet!

    Wallace’s Department Store is a unique fashion emporium, with the latest trends and brands in a friendly welcoming atmosphere. There’s also kids clothing and shoes as well as toys, stationery and arts&crafts supplies.

    In 2016, Wallace’s invested €1.7 million in upgrading the Supervalu store after 30 years in operation and this enterprising development has been a huge addition to Wellingtonbridge as a retail and holiday location.

    This year sees the opening of the Market St. Deli in Costcutters convenience store, with a dedicated seating and eating area and a variety of home cooked food to satisfy the biggest breakfast or lunch hunger, not to mention Wiseguys Pizza serving super pizza until 11pm every night

    “At Wallaces we strive to offer our customers the best available products at the best value. We harness the power of national buying groups for economies of scale whilst supporting local producers to offer unequalled quality. In addition, Wallace’s six businesses offer local employment opportunities and we’re continually improving all aspects of our business including, but not limited to, excellence in customer service.”

    There is a very strong community around ‘The Bridges’ and Wallaces is at its heart, from stocking the best of fresh local produce to our involvement in sports, charities and civic organisations, investing over €40,000 annually in grass roots projects. And with a fantastic staff numbering nearly 200 people, the Wallace family take pride in being part of this larger family who are at the heart and soul of everything we do.

    Situated just 15 minutes outside Wexford Town and New Ross, Wallace’s Wellingtonbridge is the gateway to South West Wexford. We offer local shopping in a friendly village atmosphere with free parking. Wellingtonbridge is an ideal a one-stop shopping location and experience for the thousands of holiday-makers that descend on south Wexford every summer for its wonderful beaches and exciting historical features. Of course, for the locals or the passers-by, Wallaces has a full range of quality products with the best brand names all year round.
