Windsor Branch 54

Windsor Branch 54

The first branch opened in Windsor back in 1918 and it remained at its original location right the way through until 1952.

The Partnership had brought Waitrose Ltd., then a London-based family business with ten grocery and provisions shops employing 164 staff – in October 1937.

Wallace Wyndham Waite, who opened his first shop with Arthur Rose and David Taylor 31 years before, was still in charge.

  • I stayed with my grandparents in Windsor Castle for two weeks in 1942 and my grandmother took me to the Waitrose store on Castle Hill,where the Edinburgh Woollen Mill shop now stands. I remember being sat up on the counter (I was two years old!) next to the bacon slicer(dodgy?) and watching tea and sugar being weighed out into paper bags.Waitrose did not sell meat, because my great-grandfather had a proper butchers shop at 28 Thames Street.
