In 1954, George Pragnell and his young family arrived at number 5 Wood Street with dreams of building a business and a home. To this day, our headquarters stand in the very same building in the heart of Stratford-upon-Avon; the Pragnell history and family values are embedded within these walls. The town of Stratford and its most famous son, William Shakespeare, are indelibly tied to this building, which was built by a friend and drinking companion of the great Bard, Abraham Sturley, in 1594.
Over the years, the original Pragnell home in Wood Street has expanded to incorporate four Tudor cottages, including numbers 5 and 6. 2019 was a landmark year in the Pragnell story as we underwent an exciting expansion into number 7. Along with a revamp of our existing buildings, these plans doubled our showroom space, enabling us to showcase an even wider selection of our fine jewellery and timepieces. Please do visit us and you can, of course, be sure of a warm welcome.
