Meet our new Retailer – JW Treadwell
We are really happy to introduce you to one of our new retailers, JW Treadwell. Based in Solihull in the Midlands, the family run business was established in 1939 by Mr and Mrs J.W Treadwell. In their own words, their family’s story is full of tradition and most definitely an inspiring one…
“344 Stratford Road was originally a hardware store and home to the Treadwell’s. Soon after the business was set up, Jim was called for service. Peggy kept the business running, making a mere 12 and 6 pence and week, until his permanent return in 1944. After the war ended in 1945 business improved, they specialised in paint and cut glass, increasing sales to £100 a week”.
“They eventually bought the property next door to expand the premises and introduce soft furnishings and furniture. Their son Bill joined the company in 1967 and is still running the company with his eldest Son Neil.”
We love the history of Treadwell’s, and the fact that it is still a family owned and run business comes across in the care and attention to detail that they provide their customers with. Treadwell’s offers a personal and truly bespoke service, and we look forward to working with them in the future! Visit their website or if you are local pop in and see their lovely showroom!
