1984 - From humble beginnings come great things
In 1984, life for J&H Local started off as "Harbans Mini Market" on the outskirts of Bradford.
The small corner shop was no bigger than an average sized living room, and was operated and managed solely by Harbans Kaur.
The corner shop stocked a very minimal quantity and range of goods, but had very big and heavy newpaper rounds!
2003 - Growth and comfort do not coexist
In 2003, after numerous building extensions "Harbans Mini Market" was inaugurated as "J&H Market".
This transformed the corner shop into a community convenience store , stocking a much larger range of retail goods.
The convenience store was approximately 1,800 sq.ft in size and employed 5 people.
2009 - Patience is a virtue
In 2009, after further building extensions "J&H Market" was officialy inaugurated as "J&H Local", the multi-award winning retail company.
