One-stop, general hardware and home ware supermarket, Homemart opened a showroom at the old St. Anthony’s Hardware Building at Sri Sangaraja Mawatha, Colombo 10. 

A view of the showroom

Homemart, a subsidiary of St. Anthony’s Group, was opened by the Chairman of St. Anthony’s Hardware (Pvt) Ltd, S. R Gnanam. Managing Director Praveen Gnanam, Directress Mrs. Shirani Gnanam, Director Thayananthan, General Manager Sarath Gamage and members of the senior management were also resen. 

Managing Director  Praven Gnanam said, “This is the first location that my grandfather, A. Y. S Gnanam set up St. Anthony’s Group in 1942. He worked here, built his business here, he even lived here and raised his young family on top of the stores in the early years. This place was the first home he ever built, and to him, the people who worked at St. Anthony’s were his family. So, it seems fitting that this old building, the birthplace and home of St. Anthony’s takes on a new life as a Homemart.

Homemart offers a selection of over 10,000 hardware and homeware products, across hundreds of brands, in coordination with over 200 local and international suppliers. At Homemart one might find everything for construction from the concrete for the foundation to the solar on the roof, from plumbing to paints, from roofing to machinery and tools, from electrical to everyday household consumables, from bathroom fittings to a large gardening range, to home appliance like blenders, stoves, vacuum cleaners, and water purifiers.
