Aldiss | Norfolk Furniture Store

WJ Aldiss is a department store started by the Aldiss Family in 1892 and based in Norfolk. Aldiss has two stores found in the small market town of Fakenham and on the Hall Road Business park to the South of Norwich. Aldiss of today is known for its exceptional good value, excellent customer service and extensive range of quality furniture, homewares and floorings.

WJ Aldiss Ltd was established in 1892, when the first Managing Director, William James Aldiss, started a drapery shop in Norwich Street, Fakenham. Since that date, the Company has moved several times in the town, expanding to several larger premises including Norwich Street and Upper Market.

In the 1950s the introduction of furniture by William V Aldiss, the founder's eldest son, meant that Aldiss could provide a wider range of household furnishings, soft furnishings and linens. By 1988 the company saw Timothy Aldiss take over as the new Managing Director and the company move to its present superstore site in Oxborough Lane.
