AF Thomas and Sons LTD is a long-established Newport business which was founded in 1932 by Albert Frederick Thomas.
During the early 1930’s Albert was an electrician working at Newport docks, and had a life-long ambition to open an electrical shop of his own.
Albert’s expertise and knowledge of electrical was recognised by Royalty, as he was awarded the King’s Medal for this involvement with the invention of sonar. He was awarded £100 for his contribution, which was used to open his store in Pillgwenlly.
The business thrived on its reputation for excellent customer service and eventually the product range expanded to include televisions and then household appliances such as washing machines and refrigerators.
In 2002 AF Thomas and Sons joined Europe’s largest independent buying groups. Euronics, which gave the company the huge buying power it needed to compete with large supermarkets and chain stores.
The buying group has more than 800 members all over the country, allowing smaller independant stores to get an edge over the larger chains.
Due to the constant demand for its services and value for money high-quality products, current director Andrew Thomas, Alfred’s grandson, expanded the business and relocated to its new home at Mendalgief Retail Park next door to Next and Argos.
“The move has been great,” said Andrew.
“The response has been fantastic. We’re exceptionally pleased with our loyal customer’s feedback.”
“We’ve spared no expense with the shop refit, with our kitchen appliance display being one of the largest in Wales. People are amazed by the choice of cookers and ovens, especially our Range double ovens.”
“At AF Thomas and Sons we pride ourselves on our customer service. When you purchase an item from us this is the start of the sale, not the end. We believe that great customer service is the only reason why our customers keep on coming back to us.”
“We only stock the best quality brand names such as Siemens, Sony, Bosch, Cannon, Panasonic, Blomberg, Zanussi, Hoover, Lec, Rangemaster and many more.”
“As a member of Euronics we are as competitive as the superstores but we also give a first class delivery and installation service.”
“If there is a brand you require that is not listed please contact us, as we can get almost anything to order.”
