Elphicks can trace its history back to 1881 when George Elphick opened a drapery business at 13 West Street, Farnham and we still trade from the same location today. Over the years the Store has expanded and developed and we currently trade from over 24,000 sq. ft. on two floors. The business continued to be owned by the Elphick family until October 2004, when Elphicks was acquired by Tudor Williams (Holdings) Ltd, another family owned business. It is now part of a larger retail group with sales in excess of £13m and employing over 200 staff.

Elphicks was founded on the principles of wanting to bring a sense of Choice, Quality, Value, Fun and Something Different to the High Street. Over 125 years later we continue to provide “Something Different” in the High Street.

Our buyers strive to source original and innovative products that have a sense of Fun, whilst maintaining our traditional criteria of Quality and Value.

At the heart of our business is a need to be part of our local community, listening to what our customers want, and delivering against our customer’s requirements. So over the coming months we will be inviting you, to a range of events, to take up some fantastic offers and most importantly to tell us what you do and do not like.

My team and I look forward to meeting you at those events.

Recycling your old electricals is easy!

Recycle your electrical and electronic devices free at your local recycling centre. To find your nearest centre, visit the Recycle More website and type in your postcode. www.recycle-more.co.uk

Why recycle?

Unwanted electrical equipment is the UK’s fastest growing type of waste.

 

Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment. If you do not recycle electrical equipment will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination – harming wildlife and also human health.

 

We’re proud to support your local authority in providing local recycling facilities for electrical equipment.

 

To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with this symbol) in your bin.

 

What is WEEE?

The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items.

 

How are we helping?

In the UK, distributors including retailers must provide a system which allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge. As a responsible retailer, we have met the requirements placed on us by financially supporting the national network of WEEE recycling centres established by local authorities. This is achieved through membership of the national Distributor Take-back scheme (DTS).
