The iconic Brown Thomas store on Grafton Street, Dublin traces its roots back to 1849 when the haberdashers and drapers, Hugh Brown and James Thomas, founded the business.
Brown Thomas was bought by Harry Gordon Selfridge in 1919 and remained under his ownership until 1933.
Almost four decades later, in 1971, Galen Weston took a stake in Brown Thomas before acquiring the entire business in 1983. Under the Weston family's ownership, Brown Thomas has recaptured its former position as Ireland's leading luxury retailer. There has been substantial investment in the business and significant growth.
The Brown Thomas stores share a contemporary approach to luxury retail while maintaining their individuality. As Ireland's leading premium retailer, the stores attract loyalty from customers around the world.
