Company Snapshot

Company Snapshot

Arthur Lasenby Liberty founded London department store Liberty in 1875. The store is located on the corner of Great Marlborough Street and Regent Street in London’s west end. The shop began by selling ornaments, fabric and objets d'art from Japan and the East, which the store continues to sell, in addition to womenswear, menswear, home furnishings and cosmetics. The store opened several regional stores in the 1950s, but experienced financial trouble in the 1990s, which led to the closure of all stores outside of London. The building which Liberty occupies was sold in 2009, and subsequently leased back to the company. In 2010, Liberty was taken over by private equity firm BlueGem Capital in a deal worth £32 million.
