History

NE Appliances is the largest independent retailer of kitchen appliances in Bristol.

 

Formerly known as Nailsea Electrical, the company was first established in 1982 by Peter Gilks as an electrical retail shop in Nailsea, just outside of Bristol.  A few years later, Peter opened a second shop in Bristol on the Gloucester Road, and in 1988 was crowned HTV’s Young Businessman of the Year. NE Appliances is still family-owned, now run by Peter’s son, Benjamin Gilks, who won Young Entrepreneur of the Year in 2013 and has grown the company to the South West’s largest appliance destination.

 

In 2020, Nailsea Electrical was rebranded to NE Appliances and the business invested in a brand-new website and a purpose-built kitchen appliance showroom in Hengrove, Bristol. The store boasts the largest displays of built-in appliances, refrigeration and range cooking in the South West with the excellent levels of service and value our customers expect.

 

Experience & Expertise

With over 30 years of appliance experience, we pride ourselves on providing you with the best knowledge as well as customer service in the industry.

Not only do we provide our customers with expert knowledge and a fantastic, personal service, but we also offer some of the most competitive prices in the UK. If you find that our prices aren’t as competitive as other retailers, we’ll happily price match for you!






 

Service & Customer Care

Customer service always has been, and always will be at the forefront of the NE Appliances company ethos. From the moment you begin shopping with us, be it online, or simply browsing in store, through to the delivery of your brand-new appliance, we will ensure that your experience is the very best.

We have a dedicated sales team, almost all of which are long standing employees that are passionate about NE Appliances as a brand and maintaining a positive customer experience. Each member of the team specialises in certain product fields, so we are always able to answer even the most unusual product queries!

We care about our customer experience, which is why we deliver locally for free, connect, install and recycle your old appliance.
