About Us

Come Visit the Globe HTH Team in Store Today!

Globe Timber Mills & Joinery Pty Ltd is 120 years old

and has been in the family for approx. 40+ years.  We have traded as Globe Home Timber & Hardware (Globe HTH) since June 2011 taking pride in continuously improving the shopping experience with a focus on customer service excellence and an expanding range of products & services.

The business is now owned and operated by the 2nd generation of family members and with that, has had a change in location to the current premises at 108 Galena St Broken Hill.

The current location is a historical site and previously functioned as a power plant.  In order to prepare the property for its current use the giant sheds had to be repurposed – the cool rooms removed, sheds renovated and racking and storage installed.

We retail timber & building materials; general hardware; hand & power tools; outdoor furnishings & BBQs; electrical and plumbing; paint; laundry, bathroom & kitchen appliances; décor lighting and gardening products. The product range has expanded to include green life stock in line with season changes for example, offering mini fruit trees, bagged roses and edible flowers, herbs and vegetables as spring approaches.

We have an extensive range of pool and spa chemicals, accessories and equipment also providing a complementary water testing service for customers.

Team members are dedicated to working in our kitchen and laundry design area.  It’s an end to end service that results in a Hafele Principal kitchen or laundry designed, ordered and delivered to our customers.  Our consultation service covers flat pack design, hardware (handles), bench tops, splash back, flooring, appliances and accessories.

Other offerings are are; gas refills, gas Swap’n’Go service, basic joinery & machining; key cutting; a delivery service; gift cards, water testing and a loyalty program.

Our trading hours are Monday – Friday 8 – 5.30pm, Saturday 8.30 – 2pm and Sunday 9.30am – 2pm.  We extended trading hours from Monday to Friday and now open earlier on Sundays.

Our team works closely with customers to determine their needs, assist with design, quote and order products & arrange delivery.  Our customers include those on remote properties, capital city investors, DIYers, pensioners, local & interstate trade professionals and Government customers with varying size projects.  Given the diverse customer types, we identify which sales method is appropriate resulting in either a ‘do it for me’ or ‘do it with me’ approach.

Other value-add services are finance and payment options on offer.  As well as Latitude Finance we also offer Zippay and Afterpay to customers, operate trade accounts and a loyalty program offering members effectively 5% discount on purchases when they redeem the points they have accrued.  Other loyalty card benefits apply including double points offered on some catalogue purchases, double points offered to customers when they shop on their birthday and gift cards sent to the Top 10 DIY Loyalty Club customers at Christmas time.

A 2010 article in the Barrier Daily Truth titled ‘Globe Timber Mill, An Icon of Business in the City’ ends with “…One hundred and twenty years have passed since the original wood yards supplied timber to our then pioneer town, and putting it into context, about 80 per cent of the buildings and most of the mines in this city would have Globe timber in them.  So much has changed in its corporate structure through those years but Globe remains an icon of business in our city.”

At Globe, our customers come first & so we’re doing more for homemakers, renovators, and tradies.
