7 Decades of Love – 2 min read

Posted on September 6th, 2017

At Drakes, Plymouth we are so proud of our story. Drakes was founded back in 1950 by the late Harry Hirshman and has continued as a family run business in our beloved City of Plymouth ever since. Now overseen by Harry’s son John, John’s son Andrew and daughter Monique, Drakes continues to be as dedicated to our customers as we were on our very first day of trading. The ethos and values which underpin what we do have remained the same which is something we are particularly proud of for a business which has now spanned 7 decades!

In honour of our heritage and legacy we are celebrating with our “7 Decades of Love” Competition!

Drakes Plymouth are looking for 7 couples who purchased their wedding rings from us, one for every decade Drakes has been trading. We will pick one winning couple from each decade and these 7 winning couples will then be invited to a Drakes VIP in-store shopping experience!

So did you or someone you know purchase their weddings rings from our very first store on Cornwall Street in the 50’s? Maybe your parents or even your grandparents? Did you pay a pre-wedding visit to our New George Street store in the 80’s? Or have you or someone you know purchased your wedding rings from our beautiful store in Drake Circus Mall which opened in 2006?

If so, we would love to hear from you!
