Jones & Higgins Department Store

Useful ‘Coupon-free’ Gifts at reasonable prices Starting out as a one shopfront window business, Messrs Edwin Jones and George Randell Higgins began their business venture in 1867 with a mere £80. By 1887 they had opened a 5-storey department store on the corner of Rye Lane and Peckham High Street, which went on to become one of south London’s best-known department stores.  It closed in the 1980s. They advertised in local newspapers. Source: Bromley & District Times, 5th December 1941 (page 3)
