Marsh’s has been in Dorset for as long as anyone can remember. The business was started by Harry and Edward (Ted) Marsh in 1930 in Sturminster Newton selling cars, bicycles, electric lighting, electric bells, gramophones, wireless receivers as well as charging batteries. The Company Motto back then was “Marsh’s for Quick Service” and to this day the Company still maintains this basic principle coupled with a focus on customer service, hence the current Maxim:
Ted’s son Richard (Dick) Marsh worked in the business all his life: from manning public address equipment at local events and village hall dances, to working and serving in the shop. In 1993 Dick’s daughter: Sarah Palmer joined the Company, followed by her husband Ross Palmer in 2005 and they continue the strong focus and tradition of providing excellent customer service coupled with competitive pricing.
Marsh’s is one of the longest standing members of Euronics which is the largest electrical buying group for independent retailers within Europe, thus ensuring prices and products for customers remain very competitive.
The company is still family owned and run and in April 2001 with the business prospering, a second shop was opened in Cheap Street, Sherborne.
So next time an electrical appliance breaks down in your house why not pop into Marsh’s and be amazed at the competitive prices and experience the excellent service first hand.
