If homeware/hardware is what you are looking for then Metcalfes is the store for you. Full of products and steeped in history. First opened in 1948 it has been part of Tring's High Street ever since, although it has changed over the years. Metcalfes offers a personal service to it's customers, with a vast stock at competitive prices (this is their USP, Unique Selling Point).

During our visit we toured the premises and looked at the services and products Metcalfes provide. For their business to be successful it is important for them to have and take care of their customers. Staff serve the customers, run the shop, display the products and make sure their customers are satisfied. Computers, internet, and an electronic till system enable Metcalfes to have instant access to stock control enabling them to reorder stock quickly.

Down in the cellar Metcalfes have an amazing homeware selection as well as a bread oven built around 1850 when the Tring/Cheddington railway line was built. You can't see to the back of the oven in the photographs but if you visit the store for yourselves you can see that the oven is enormous. Bakers from the period would have made lots of bread for all of the railway workers.
