Herbert Webb started this family run business in 1936, with a paraffin round, in and around the Crickhowell, Abergavenny and Brynmawr area. He borrowed £10 from his mother to get himself started, paid her back after the first week and the business has just grown from strength to strength. Herbie very often jokingly said ‘if I’d had had a puncture in the first few weeks, I was in business I would have gone bankrupt’.
The business had an enforced interval when Herbert had to serve his National Service during the war. When he returned, business was back to normal, his wife Dulcie, and brother-in-law Garnett, were busy running the little hardware shop. Webbs of Crickhowell is a family owned department store specialising in quality furniture at the very best prices.
