One of Boltons Oldest and best known department stores is to get a makeover!
Whittakers has been in Bolton as long as I can remember but no wonder as it has officially been trading in Bolton for 134 years.
The store is owned by Beales and has now had a name change to reflect this however the old Whittakers flags are still flying the the sign on the turret on Deansgate is still visible.
Beales Group aqquired the store in 1996 and have acquired a further 19 stores across the UK this year bringing their portfolio to a total of 32 stores.
