Our Heritage

Our founder, Edwin Henry Booth had one simple aim, ‘’To sell the best goods he could buy in shops staffed with first-class assistants’’.

Our story began in 1847, when tea dealer Edwin Henry Booth, then aged 19, opened The China House in Blackpool with a loan of £80 to purchase his stock. Just three months later, he repaid the debt and made a profit of £50. As he extended his stock he became even more successful, and in 1863 we moved into the wine and spirits trade before opening our first cafés in 1902.

Since then, we’ve grown significantly, continuing to source the best food and drink available, whether it’s the best of the region, or simply the best of its type. Our founding philosophy remains the same and we’re proud to call ourselves The Good Grocer.
