Beales Department Stores


Beales Department Store


Beales is an English department store chain established in 1881 by John Elmes Beale, currently operating 29 branches.

Beales remained a family business throughout the 20th century.  J E Beale was succeeded by his son Bennett Beale and then by his grandson Frank, who after university at Oxford and LSE trained at Macy’s in New York. 

The original store in Bournemouth was bombed in the Second World War, but the Beales family developed a flagship store on the same site. 

Beales sees itself as a family department store group offering fine brands and products at attractive prices, with loyal and committed staff.
