Wellingborough menswear shop celebrates 150 years in business

December 14, 2018

A Wellingborough menswear shop, which has been run by five generations of the same family, has been celebrating 150 years in business.

Warwicks was established in 1868 when Samuel Warwick opened his tailor shop in High Street

Great-great-grandsons David and Neil Warwick run the business today and David says the shop’s endurance is because of four simple things.

He told the Northamptonshire Telegraph: “It’s all down to the four Ps – place, product, price and people – that’s the success of the business.

And he added: “We are a family business and we try to give good service and people like us and keep coming back.”

During both world wars, Warwicks made uniforms for British soldiers.

Today Warwicks  has shops in Kettering, opened in 2002, and its Northampton branch opened in 2009.

It sells modern brands and also offers a popular hire service for proms and weddings.

To celebrate the 150-year milestone, Warwicks has been running promotions throughout the year and has made celebratory mugs which can be bought in-store.
