Our History

Trinity House was acquired by the Spores / Roberts family in 1979, and was at that time a very old business operating from a historical building located in Trinity Square. The building was so called after a fire that destroyed most of the centre of Axminster on Trinity Sunday in 1834.

In 2015 Trinity House was acquired by Goulds of Dorchester.

Trinity House remains one of the few select, family owned and managed, independent department stores left in the UK. Bright, modern and friendly, providing unrivalled customer service in relaxed and refined surroundings.
