British Retail, and the men who shaped itMany of the high street names that meet our twenty-first century needs began with men and women who had ideas, imagination and sheer determination in a different age.
Shopping is a universal part of modern-day life, and in British Retail
and the Men Who Shaped It we look at the people behind the corporations
that built the modern-day high street and changed the way we shopped.
This book is a celebration of the people who, through self-belief and
determination created the multi-million-pound retail businesses we use
