Butlers Emporium

From Historical Hastings

Butlers Emporium had shops at 70 George Street & 101 Bohemia Road. The proprietor was John James Butler (1853-1916), who ran the shops in their early days with his wife Mary Ann Butler (1853-1913) (nee Larkin) and their children Jessie & Percy and grandchildren Percy & Stanley. In 1976, a devastating fire resulted in the demolition of one of the buildings housing the emporium, the space becoming Butlers Gap

On the 1st February, 1986, Butlers Emporium, the famous multi-purpose shop at the east end of George Street, was sold to Tony Hodgson by David Butler[1]
