About us

Ashton TV is a local family business and was started in Ashton-On-Ribble, Preston in 1986 by Gary Pendlebury, a young man with a passion for electricals and an entrepreneurial mind for more and to better serve the people of Preston.

Gary started his life selling refurbished Betamax Video players and the company grew from there, stepping into the sale, service and repair of white goods and TV’s, ever evolving with new and up to date technologies.

Ashton TV has always offered the rental and maintenance of appliances to its customers, allowing more and more people to have affordable access to items which are very much a necessity for us today, a method which people are continuing to choose.

Ashton TV originally held several retail locations at different times, as the business developed, Cannon Hill to Tulketh Brow to name a couple but with the last shop closing its doors in 2015 the business moved in tandem with modern business and began operating on an online only basis, which has only served to grow the business further and better serve our customers.

Today, Ashton TV continues to grow its customer base as well as the range of products that we can offer to you, the customer. We are a uniquely flexible company and no request for an item is too great, we will always look at requests should you not find what you’re looking for on the website and consider these on individual merit. We pride ourselves on offering a personal touch, something which is fading away, in this day and age of retail.

In the not-too-distant future, our plans are to grow into new geographical areas and offer even more products to our customers across the Lancashire and beyond.
