Hatfields Furnishers Ltd have remained a leading local retailer since 1886, when John Hatfield, began selling curio’s. The front room of his home was used to store all his stock for the week's business. Only on Saturday night was it cleared out so that he and his wife could enjoy the use of a normal front room on Sundays! John Hatfield was a popular character who noted his customers' requirements on his paper shirt cuffs! This primitive paperwork was obviously successful and John's business soon outgrew the front room of his house.

Other premises were therefore acquired in St. John’s Street and Sir Isaac’s Walk. In a slight diversion from furniture, grapes growing in the greenhouse were sold over the counter for a halfpenny a pound during the Great War. The business continued to grow with more members of the family becoming involved. Hatfields relocated to the site of an old confectionery business, C W Hancock, in St Botolph’s Street in 1963 and then to its current buildings in Peartree Road in 1975. Today we employ over 65 staff and offer a superb array of furniture, including top brands.
