We are so excited to have reached 60 years in business! Thomas Harper started the business in 1958 and we are so proud to be able to say that 60 years on there are still four members of the Harpers family working in the business – not an easy achievement considering just how much the world has changed, especially in the way we shop.
We are especially proud that the youngest member of the Harpers family, Alice, has chosen to work within the family business and bring in her knowledge and expertise, as well as being mentored to shape the future for Harpers Foods.
Take a look at how we started out and where we have reached so far…
If you are one of the regulars at Harpers then you are sure to have come into contact with Peter Harper himself, always on hand to look after customers and with a wealth of knowledge about all the products that we offer, especially on the Meat Counter.
Of course, if you know Peter, you will also know that he is never short for words, and especially so at this special time to mark 60 years in business! Have a read of Peter’s special letter to all our loyal customers, and you can also pick up a copy in the Food Hall or Coffee Shop.
So, how are we celebrating? Well, every celebration needs people to share it with, so we would love for you to join us between Thursday 14 to Sunday 17 June between 11.30am and 2pm.
Members of the Harpers family will be present to personally welcome you and to share a complimentary glass of prosecco and some sweet canapes. We’d like to thank everyone personally for making this achievement possible; without the loyal support of our customers over all these years, we would not be here today, and for that we are truly humbled and grateful.
We look forward to seeing you next week.
