The food and drink retailer celebrates its 175th year in business this summer and remains respected for their wide range of artisan and speciality cheeses sourced from cheesemakers across the UK and the continent.

It was founded in June 1847, by tea dealer Edwin Henry Booth, 19, who secured a loan of £80 to open his first shop, The China House in Blackpool.

He repaid the debt three months later, making a profit of £50.

Booths now has stores across Lancashire, Yorkshire, Cumbria, Cheshire and Greater Manchester and is committed to sourcing products locally and seasonally from the counties it serves.
