G.L. Beath & Co - Clothiers

Description

G.L. Beath & Co. was founded by a Mr. Kirby in 1860, and Beath joined the company in 1866. Kirby later left the business, and Beath brought in his brother-in-law, Frank Malcolm. Beath and Malcolm remained in business together until 1896, trading as G.L. Beath & Co.. Their premises were on Cashel Street, Christchurch. Beath suffered substantial loss in 1871 when the former town hall, which he had leased after it was damaged by an earthquake, burned down while 3000 pounds worth of stock was inside. At the time he was only insured for damage up to the value of 1000 pounds.

Malcolm left the partnership in 1896 to go into business on his own account and Beath was joined by J.E. Wickenden, who had previously been a draper in London's West End. Together they expanded their store greatly, and in 1902 they transformed the business into a limited liability company. By this time Beath had retired from active involvement in the business, but he remained a director of the company until his death in 1914. Between 1907 and 1935 the company acquired a number of properties. In 1935 a six storey store was built, including a tea-room and roof garden.
