Who Is Hermanus Build It?

Welcome to Hermanus Build It!

After ten years of planning, we opened this flagship store in March 2016. Hermanus Build It was designed in such a way so as to serve you best! All of our departments are ideally laid out and our offices are in the middle of our store, allowing you personalised access to top management if you need it.

Our focus is customer service and all our staff are there to make your shopping experience the best possible! We also have a strong focus on community support, and have fallen absolutely in love with the people, places and animals in Hermanus.

We look forward to welcoming you so please do pop in for a visit!
