Dorchester Electrical Store Reopens

Panasonic Shop Dorchester

7:32am 13th May 2014

A household name has returned to the Dorchester High Street.

Shoppers were left shocked when the plug was pulled on Panasonic's shop in Trinity Street back in March.

But the store's been reopened by EB Marsh and Son.

Director Sarah Palmer says they now employee three people in Dorchester and its great news for the county town.

"I think with the last operator closing the shop it was quite a disappointment for the town, as there is nobody independent in the town that sells televisions. So it was great opportunity and I didn't want to miss it."

"It is great to be open here and they'll be some old faces customers will remember in here is well, so come along and take a look."

EB Marsh and Son have shops in Sherborne and Sturminster Newton.  Their Sturminster Newton store was opened by Sarah Palmers Grandfather and his brother back in the 1930's.
