Our Sunderland store is proud to have been fulfilling the city’s decorating needs since 1884, formerly as a Williamson Decorator Centre before joining Brewers in 2018.
As one of the oldest businesses in Sunderland, you can be confident our service and product knowledge is top-notch, and our dedicated team is on hand to help with all manner of decorating queries.
We stock an impressive range of products and have mixing facilities on site for Dulux Trade, Armstead, Crown Trade, Macpherson, Albany, Johnstone’s, Little Greene and Zinsser. Unlike most Brewers stores, we also stock a large retail range, including Ronseal, Rustins, Dulux, Crown, and Johnstone’s retail paints.
If there’s anything you can’t find in store, we’re happy to order it for you. We also offer a Click + Collect service on all products, including wallpapers from our sister site wallpaperdirect.
In store, you’ll find an extensive library of wallpaper and pattern books, offering an incredible choice of popular brands and latest trends. Our creative team of interior designers can help you find what you’re looking for and offer free in-store advice on your scheme. Most of our curtains and soft furnishings are also made in-store by our own seamstress. For that added personal touch, we can offer a design service in the comfort of your own home, available on request.
Free local delivery is available for all customers. Alternatively, for the busy decorator, our simple and secure Lock Box facility gives you the convenience of collecting your goods 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Finding the Sunderland store
Our historical store – one of the old ropery works which supplied the shipbuilding trade – is easy to find. We’re located on the north side of the river, less than a minute’s drive from the Sunderland Stadium of Light, and along Roker Avenue. We’re next door to Lidl.
We have free customer parking at the front of the store. The building is wheelchair accessible.
Designed for the busy decorator, the Brewers 24 hour collection service uses a simple and secure lock box system.
When ordering your goods with your local Brewers, you'll be sent a code (unique to your order) by SMS so that you can access the secure lock box at a time that suits you.
