Our history

Topline Brownes has been an integral part of the community in Castleisland, Co. Kerry since the 1950’s. The business was originally known as Browne’s Cash Stores and was founded by DJ Browne upon his return home from America. The store was originally situated on the Killarney Road with its own bakery on site. It continued to grow through the 50’s and 60’s. DJ also provided a pig fattening service and had his own mill located where the existing Topline Brownes store is today. In 1970, DJ’s son Noel Browne took over management of the business, and under his guidance the business continued to grow bigger and better. On his retirement in 2004, Lee Strand Cooperative Creamery Ltd bought the business and Topline Brownes is continuing to grow.

The local community

Topline Brownes and our parent company Lee Strand Cooperative Creamery Ltd enjoys an excellent relationship with the local community. We support many initiatives throughout Kerry in the areas of sport, education and charity. We also show our customers our appreciation by offering many opportunities throughout the year to win prizes in our stores.

The Topline group

Since becoming a member of Topline, Ireland’s largest DIY buying group in 2003, Topline Brownes has greatly benefited from Topline’s bulk buying power, which as a result offers our customers the best value. Topline’s marketing, staff training, store revamps and merchandising also allow us to be competitive with other hardware chains.
