Direct descendants of Arthur Pearson Senior, his great-grandchildren and cousins to each other, Jonathan and Sarah Pearson, run the company today and are naturally proud of the store's long heritage.
I joined Boswells in 1992 and then Sarah came on board in 1994, following in our fathers' footsteps. We have taken great care to modernise and move the business forward, without taking away the essence of what our loyal customers love about the store.
