David Jones 175 Anniversary Press Kit

Megan Gale

2013 is a year of celebrations and special moments as David Jones commemorates its 175th year, a significant birthday marking David Jones as one of the world’s oldest department stores.

It is the time to celebrate the vision and the fortitude of David Lloyd Jones who opened the doors to David Jones & Co, originally on the corner of George and Barrack Street Sydney, for the first time on the 24th of May 1838. The mission of the Welsh-born immigrant when first opening the "large and commodious premises" was to sell "the best and most exclusive goods".

175 years on and this vision still remains at the forefront of David Jones which has successfully established itself as an iconic and global retail destination.
