Thorns is a unique, independent and family run DIY store which has been trading in Norwich since 1835.

The DIY store has eight departments which stock thousands of items for home, garden, industrial, agricultural and commercial use. We take pride in our reputation for being Norwich’s leading independent DIY store and providing our customers with a personal and friendly service.

Our store is known by our customers for being an Aladdin's cave – it looks deceptively small from the outside but come inside and be surprised!

As the store has been operating since 1835, the building itself is very old and atmospheric and its quirky layout

We offer a Free Delivery service to customers in the greater Norwich area and can deliver to the rest of Norfolk or further afield for just a small charge.
