Company history

Edward Dingle opened his drapery shop at 30 Bedford Street, Plymouth, England, in 1880. Within a year of starting out in business, Dingle employed thirteen shop assistants, twelve dressmakers and two boys. He took on Tom Baker in the position of floor-walker and when Baker married Dingle's sister, he was made a partner in E Dingle & Co. By 1900, the Dingle store had an uninterrupted frontage from 29-31 Bedford Street, and a shop behind, at 5 Cornwall Street, had also been connected to the Bedford Street premises.

In 1926, the store occupied 28-31 and 33 Bedford Street and 4-6 Cornwall Street. In 1935, E Dingle & Co Ltd was registered as a private limited company.
