Our Story



Daniel Benadé opens his first paint & hardware store in 1990. It was situated in Strand on the corner of Van Ryneveld and Hofmeyer Street.

Benade's second store opens in Somerset West in 1992. It was situated in the Twin Oaks Centre, Main Road, Somerset West.



Having the need to expand, the Somerset Store moves up the road to 162 Main Road Somerset West in 1995.

Benade's third store was a game changer. This store was one of the first full home improvement and diy retail store in South Africa. It combined the traditional paint & hardware store with a garden centre and nursery. This opened it's doors in 2001 and is situated in Somerset Value Centre, Centenary Drive, Somerset West



Benade's Strand branch needed to expand and it was decided to move to South Side Centre, Corner of George Street and Gordons Bay Boulevard, Strand.

In 2003 Benade re-branded his companies. They would now trade as Benbel. His three store would be known as Benbel GardenBenbel Somerset and Benbel Strand.



Benbel Helderview opens in 2006. This store was situated in Waterstone Village, Somerset West.

Due to the need for Benbel Somerset and Benbel Helderview to expand it was decided to combine the two stores and move to bigger premises and in 2012 they started trading as Benbel Home & Garden.
