Dorset Tim-Br Mart was purchased by Reginald and France Mouland in 1976 originally operated by Robert Abernathy as Dorset Building Centre. The business started with a small hardware shop, three storage sheds, a pine furniture store, a woodworking shop and one delivery truck. Over the years Reginald and France renovated the hardware store, and added 2 more storage sheds, and brought up three daughters, Jackie, Chantal and Julie. In the early eighties, Reginald became part of a provincial buying group called “Homecare Building Centres”, and was able to use the buying power of the group while staying independant. Reginald passed away in 1996, leaving the operations to his wife France. Over the next four years France and her daughter and son-in-law, Chantal and Rob Hamilton, worked on growing the business and learning the ropes. Dorset Building Centre changed it’s name to Dorset Tim-Br Mart in 1997, this was a decision made by “Homecare” in order to distinguish it’s buying members as primarily lumber and hardware retailers, and to stop the confusion between “Homecare Building Centres”, and “Home Hardware”. Since the name change, Rob and Chantal have grown the business to include eight delivery trucks, eleven full time staff, three more sheds and an ever increasing assortment of inventory. We are proud to offer the same excellent customer service as we have since 1976, and free delivery* in the Muskoka/Haliburton region.
