David Seaborne finished working at Philip Morris & Son after 46 years of service. David started at Philip Morris & Son in January 1964 after working at Hepworth’s, a gents tailors, where Maurice Jones (Senior Partner at Philip Morris & Son) can remember being measured by him for a suit. During David’s 46 years of service he has seen a lot of changes from our legendary overhead Lampson change system and hand written receipts to vat coming in and the start of a manual cash register, to electronic point of sale to a computerised till and stock control system and finally internet selling. The style of store has also changed from one of counter service to browse and buy and online sales. David started life at Philip Morris & Son as a shop assistant on the counters and progressed to become Manager of the Bathroom department. As a farewell gift David was presented with a toilet seat trophy entitled “King of the Toilet seats 46 years on the throne” as well as other gifts and mementos from staff and partners.
Philip Morris & Son won the Chamber of Commerce business awards category for growth business of the year. We are very proud to be the winner on this special year as it marked 150 years since the British Chambers of Commerce was founded. The Chamber Awards were launched by the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) in 2004 to recognise and celebrate business excellence through the successes and achievements of its Accredited Chambers of Commerce and their members.
