History of Taskers


Liverpool Door Centre is part of the Taskers group which is one of the country's leading and largest independent DIY and Home Stores. The concept is to provide the complete home solution, all you need for your home from DIY, plumbing, heating supplies, decorating supplies and garden furniture and gardening products to a vast choice of home furnishing ranges and accessories. From traditional to modern with leading brands at great competitive prices.

With over 50 years experience in the industry, this family-run company has expanded greatly. What started with a £10 family loan to its founder, Jack Tasker, Taskers has now become one of the UK’s leading and most innovative independent home stores.

In the early days Taskers traded out of a number of small outlets in Liverpool, and offered joinery and shopfitting services alongside traditional hardware products, expanding their service to their loyal customers. The retail side of the business was a growing success and the core product range in Hardware rapidly expanded with the onset of the DIY phenomenon in the 60’s. Taskers DIY placed itself firmly on the map.

In more recent years the introduction of the home furnishings and accessories ranges have provided a natural extension to the Taskers offering, the home and furnishing ranges have grown enormously from just a few key pieces to a complete home selection from fantastic brands such as Halo, Calligaris, Bernhardt, Nolte, Tempur, Stressless, Hypnos and Parker Knoll.

Today the company employs over 250 staff in a total of 18 departments With two huge retail sites in the Liverpool, Merseyside area, in Wavertree and Aintree and with over 60,000 products, incorporated into 18 departments its easy to see how Taskers remain at the forefront of the industry.


In spite of Taskers rapid growth, the company retains a firm grasp of its core values, identity and philosophy. It is consistently committed to supplying great home products at great value for money.

Customer satisfaction is at the heart of the level of service that Taskers provides and this is consistently monitored, with the Company’s MD, John Tasker, replying directly to all customer queries.

It is evident that Taskers have developed a winning formula, a family store with an offering to rival any of the big chains.
