The original founders
In 1893 George and his brother John Broadley were given £500 each to set up their own tailoring business. John came south to Bromley and set up the first business.
Opening of East Grinstead store
Three years later George stood on Victoria Railway Station wondering where he should open his own business. On a noticeboard, he saw East Grinstead advertised which he thought would be a good place. Following his intuition he caught a train there. After seeing a ‘To Let’ board he founded the East Grinstead branch.
Expansion of Broadleys
George expanded the family business with branches in Haywards Heath (1900), Hove (1907), Horsham (1907). Towards the end of WW1 George bought a War Bond which financed the Government’s war effort and three months later he had a win. This capital provided him with the money to buy premises in Eastbourne (1915), Worthing, and in 1931 they bought a business in Portslade.
Passing the business on
After 1925 the family suffered a number of deaths which led to the closure of various branches. In 1997 Simon (4th generation) took over the running of the East Grinstead store. His cousin Christopher took charge of the Hove shop until 2001 when it closed.
Now in the present, the family operate solely from the East Grinstead store. Alex the 5th genration is now heavily involved in the business, transforming the digital side.
