Holloway's has been established in the heart of Ashton Under Lyne for almost 60 years, at the end of 2016 we celebrate its diamond birthday celebration.

In 1954, George & Marjorie Holloway set up George Holloway Limited which specialised in luggage and leather goods, the first shop they had was located on 76 Wellington Road (now Gourleys veterinary surgery). Holloways only spent a brief period at this location as the old buildings were demolished in 1956. It was at this point Holloway's relocated to 5 Bow Street, Ashton Under Lyne, which lies adjacent to Ashton Market Hall. 

As the sons became of age, they become more and more involved in the company. In 1960, the Holloway's purchased 16 Old Street, which was to become a saddlery centre. A young John Holloway eventually took full control of this business in 1961, while younger brother Mike took control of the travel goods centre on Bow Street later in 1969.

Father and son, man and wife worked side by side for decades to come. Business flourished and the two stores became established at the centre of the Ashton community.

Moving us forward into the future are the same family friends who purchased 16 Old Street, who greatly appreciate, understand and respect the Holloway's tradition. The store will offer the same customer service and carry on the same tradition the family have done for the past 60 years. 

Having recently opened a brand new showroom extension on the first floor of our store, customers can relax whilst our friendly staff demonstrate the latest ranges and offer advice and assistance helping you find the perfect answer to your travelling needs. We’ll be stocking industry-leading brands such as Antler, Samsonite and Trunki, with many more exciting additions in the pipeline!

The store will still be stocking core brands such as Radley, The Bridge, Gerry Weber, Kipling, Tilley, Barbour, Hoggs, Samsonite, Antler, and Fulton to name a few, but it will also be bringing in new exciting leading brands. We also pride ourselves on supporting local products, for example Failsworth hats who supply a fine range of men’s and women’s hats and gloves.

Holloway's is quintessentially British, a unique boutique department store, with decades of history and tradition. Enjoy our online catalogue or come and visit us in-store at 5 Bow St, Ashton-under-Lyne, OL6 6BU
