The Jewel in the Crown

TH Baker is the oldest recorded client of Higgs & Sons. Ledger entries in Higgs’ archives list the family run business as a client as far back as the 1880s.

“I remember going to the old Higgs & Sons offices when I was a child,” recalls current chair of the TH Baker group Alan Higgs. “Higgs & Sons has always been there as part of the TH Baker story for as long as I can remember.”

David Higgs has similar long standing memories.

“I have been part of Higgs & Sons for over 50 years and TH Baker has been a client throughout this time. There has always been a strong relationship between our organisations and it is pleasing to know that it continues to flourish to this day.”

Higgs & Sons has supported the jewellers through some key times in its development, most recently in its new association with world renowned brand, Pandora.

“This autumn TH Baker will be opening new premises in Birmingham’s prestigious Grand Central development. This really is exciting news for our firm as it takes its place in the incredible retail space built around Birmingham’s new transport hub at New Street,” explains Alan Higgs.

“It reflects the incredible development of our firm over recent years. It is a journey which has been supported at each stage by Higgs & Sons.”

Higgs & Sons has looked after T H Baker’s property portfolio for many years. During this time TH Baker’s presence on the high street has increased dramatically. Higgs has also provided specialist employment support and business advice as each new generation has taken helm.

From humble Black Country beginnings to a renowned national profile, the stories of TH Baker and Higgs & Sons are, in many ways intertwined; each with a proud sense of history but a keen anticipation of an exciting future ahead.
