"In almost every great city in the world, there is a store that has maintained it’s magic over generations. A store which is as much an experience as a place to shop. A name that evokes thoughts of exclusivity and confidence. Brown Thomas in Ireland is such a store. Proud of it’s heritage, and of it’s people, Brown Thomas has had its foothold in Irish style since its inception in 1849... Brown Thomas is part of the Wittington Investment Group, a worldwide company specialising in retail excellence – consisting of Selfridges Group Limited in the United Kingdom, Holt Renfrew in Canada, and de Bijenkorf in The Netherlands."
