End of an Era, Closure of Glossop Road Shop

The T.L. Killi's Shop on Glossop Road has been a significant part of Sheffield's history for more than six decades. Established in 1964, its founder, Mr Killi, built a thriving company that expanded over the years, with two more sites opening in Handsworth in the 1980s and another in 2019. 


Sadly, Mr Killi passed away in June 2023, and since then, the shop has not been the same without him. Now, a new chapter in the Killis' story has begun, and we regret to announce that the Glossop Road Branch will be permanently closing on Friday, 26th April 2024.


We aim to pay tribute to Mr. Killi's outstanding life and accomplishments and preserve the company he built by concentrating on our core business strengths. We have some thrilling expansion plans for Killis, which will celebrate and uphold his vision.


The outpouring of support from our customers since Mr Killi's passing has been extremely comforting to the Killi family, and to do the business justice, we must make hard decisions to secure our future.


All operations will migrate to our branch in Handsworth, where we have full servicing, hire, a trade counter, and a showroom. From 26th April, any outstanding work will automatically transfer to Handsworth.


This year also marks our 60th year of trading, and this summer we are planning a party with all our staff. Part of this is to recognise and celebrate Mr Killi's accomplishments and what the entire team has achieved over such a long time.
