There has been a grocery business on the Temple Fortune Parade in the Golders Green area of north London since the late 1930s.  In the Gazette of 15th December 1945 the following announcement appeared:

"... Waitrose have now added two new branches.  These were previously trading under the name of Copes Stores, and are situated at 33 and 35 Temple Fortune Parade, Golders Green and 12 Belle Vue Road, Wandsworth Common.

All of the staff connected with these businesses (of whom there are twenty) are continuing in the business, and we feel sure that all Partners will wish to extend a hearty welcome to them on joining the Partnership".

This continuity of service marks Temple Fortune as one of the oldest Waitrose branches still trading, a fact of which we are justly proud.
