Greenwoods, Essex

Greenwoods is a chain of menswear stores based in Bradford, England. The company was founded by Sir Willie Greenwood in 1860 as a hatters shop. At its peak in the 1990s there were around 200 branches of the store. In October 2008, a Chinese retailer expressed an interest in purchasing a 50% stake in the chain. However, whilst negotiations were made, the company was hit badly by the downturn in the Global and British economy in the last quarter of 2008.
