Wroes LTD

Earliest records of the business date to 1919 where a lease was granted for a small electrical shop, located in the Strand Shopping Centre, Bude. During the 1930’s this electrical shop diversified to become a clothing shop. In 1946 this business was then bought out by the grandparents of the current managing directors. It is from this point that Wroes has steadily expanded and developed into the business that it is today, selling a huge range of products for everyday life, across 4 stores in Cornwall and Devon.

Wroes’ core values of choice, value and service remain at the forefront of the business and have remained unchanged despite the challenging retail environment and the enormous change Wroes has encountered throughout the years. These core values are constantly reviewed and improved on to enable the business to move forward year on year and are of paramount importance to the Directors and the staff. Along with these core values Wroes are firm supporters of local charities and fund raisers. Many an event has been hosted or supported by Wroes to raise money for local and national charities.


The Bude store is a full department store with a wide range of departments and a choice of goods only usually found in much larger towns.

It was extended and refitted a few years ago and is certainly the finest independent Department Store in Cornwall.
