Reimagine Retail


Ours is a family that does things differently.

Hugely proud of our past but always looking forward, we’re passionate about a better retail future for our customers and our people.

Achieving this takes a special kind of balance.

Between the beauty and creativity of the stores, our amazing online destinations, and the dedication and energy that drives them.

Between the truly iconic and the richly human.

Always in the moment, but built to last, whether it's bricks and mortar or online spaces. Driven to success but committed to doing it right.

Because we care about where we’re going and we care about how we get there.

Our Businesses


Brown Thomas is Ireland’s premier lifestyle retailer. Through its internationally acclaimed and award-winning window displays, renowned fashion shows, exclusive product launches and unique luxury boutiques, Brown Thomas offers an unparalleled luxury shopping experience. It is a destination for Irish and international customers alike.

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.
