Our History

Glasswells is a family business established in 1946 in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk by Jerry and Leslie Glasswell. In May 1946 when Jerry Glasswell opened the very first furniture shop in Brentgovel Street, Bury St Edmunds, this was to become the foundation of the biggest family run home furnishings company in East Anglia.

This was Jerry’s proudest moment. Since, the store has also been under the direction of Leslie, Jerry’s son and later, his grandson Paul, who is the managing director today. We are proud of our heritage and apply everything we have learnt over the years to offer a shopping experience that is second to none. More details
