Sheds4less - The Story

Sheds4Less was established in 2010 by Alex Cochran and 4 other hardware retailer veterans. Alex began his retail journey in 1977 with a cadetship that lasted three years with McEwans hardware in Victoria. He went on to earn a Master's Degree from Monash University. In the 1980's, he became the Marketing Manager for McEwans, then moved to other major Australian retail chains after a successful takeover. Alex's retail career hit a sudden halt in 2008 when his partner needed full-time care after a massive stroke. He made a switch to consulting. Today, he is a successful businessman. The team at Sheds4less have changed the way garden sheds are sold, giving the customer a broader range of choices and more value. Since inception they have sold over 17,000 sheds, bringing the garden shed market into the digital age.
