In 1865 William Timpson and his brother-in-law, Walter Joyce started selling shoes in Manchester. Timpson was already a shoemaker. By 1884 the business was going so well that they expanded into making their own shoes, they had a purpose-built factory on Kettering. By 1903 they had diversified again and included shoe repairs in their range. The company stayed in the family until 1973 when United Drapery Stores purchased the business. Interestingly John Timpson, direct descendent of the founder, continued working for the company and became the managing director in 1975. He subsequently led a management buyout and then, after several years of difficult trading, sold the shoe section to George Oliver, their main rival. This allowed them to focus on shoe repairs and key cutting.
The company continues to trade successfully to this day. It now specializes in shoe care, creating signs, engraving products, key-cutting, security, and locksmith jobs, and even offers a selection of books for sale. It should be noted that the books address mental health issues and business concerns. All of their product range is backed up with excellent customer service and a comprehensive set of guides.
