We are very pleased to announce that the business of Smith & Co Woollens, including that of W.Bill will become part of Harrisons/LBD.

Smith & Co Woollens is a very successful and well established company, with an envious reputation as one of the finest Woollen Merchants in the country.

It is our intention to maintain and enhance the company still further, for the next generation of discerning customers.

We feel very fortunate to have been offered the chance to acquire the business from Mr David Graham, whom we hope, will enjoy his well earned retirement.

Smith & Co Woollens will remain operating out of their London offices up until the end of business on 28th March 2014.Then as from Monday 31st all orders will be despatched from Harrisons head office in Exeter.

We will be keeping the London office in Sackville Street, from which Mr John Bell, along with his assistant Jack O'Brian will be joined by Xabier Golcoechea, to assist customers in the usual way.

We, of course, will endeavour to make the transition as smooth as possible and thank you in advance for your kind co-operation.
