Hatfields Furnishers Ltd have remained a leading local retailer since 1886. John Hatfield, began selling curio’s from the front room of his home, using it to store all his stock for the week’s business. Only on Saturday night was it cleared out so that he and his wife could enjoy the use of a normal front room on Sundays! John Hatfield was a popular character who noted his customers’ requirements on his paper shirt cuffs! This primitive paperwork was obviously successful and John’s business soon outgrew the front room of his house.
Numerous other premises were acquired throughout the years, with the present premises in Peartree Road being found in 1975. Today we employ over 65 staff and offer a superb array of furniture, including top brands.
Good customer service is the difference between a flourishing store with happy customers and one that is empty and forgotten. Hatfields will always strive to ensure good customer service is paramount; it is after all the best way to gain a trusted reputation and one which people will recommend.
Managing director Robert London commented: “Since 1886 Hatfields has been providing Colchester and the surrounding areas with the finest quality home furnishings there are. We are proud of this incredible achievement in our family business and on behalf of four generations, it is my pleasure to honour the manufacturers, craftsmen, customers and staff who have helped Hatfields continue on the road of success.”
