By 1946 when their son Dennis was de-mobbed from the services the shop was selling toys and a variety of garden products and was well known for selling Coopers Seeds. Charles passed away in the 1930s. It was in 1962 that Dennis Short decided to expand the business from garden products alone and move towards ironmongery and DIY. Dennis's son Barry joined the family business is 1966 and was responsible for driving its growth during this period; however, Dennis sadly passed away in 1985. In 1985 Barry and Ruth's son Chris joined the family business and a second store Mr Fixit opened in Flitwick.
