When businessman John Timpson started his retailing career in 1960, there were no supermarkets, no out-of-town shopping centres and not even a hint of internet shopping. The British high street was full of made-to-measure tailors and traditional grocers. Among the household names were MacFisheries, Dewhurst, John Collier and Timothy White. In this enjoyable new book, Timpson shows how successive generations of forward-thinking shopkeepers and inspirational entrepreneurs have led the major retailers through a period of rapid change - people such as Ken Morrison, Ralph Halpern and Anita Roddick, without whom our high streets would have looked very different. This unique survey - from a man who knows a few things about success in retail - paints a compelling, personal and vivid picture of how shops have changed over the last 100 years and reveals who Timpson thinks has had the biggest influence on the shape of shopping in the retail revolution.
