Colemans, the independent, family
business selling stationery, offi ce
supplies, art & craft materials from
their 13 High Street stores across
Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire,
Lincolnshire and Leicestershire, is
continuing into a third generation.
Started by John Coleman in 1969
in Higham Ferrers, the company
is now run by John’s daughter,
Joanna, whose own daughter,
Tallie, has just joined the family
fi rm.

Joanna and Tallie have spent their
time in lockdown creating a fantastic
new stationery website, which will
make it even easier to shop with
Colemans, and the service is ideal
for the increasing amount of people
now working from home.

Colemans has survived and thrived in the face of
recessions, competition from large chains and the
internet, catering for business customers, hobbyists and
students - as well as younger children. To celebrate their
50th anniversary, the company opened a new store at the
front of their Central Warehouse in Rushden at the end of
July last year, selling stationery and offi ce supplies, right
next door to their wonderful Colemans Craft Warehouse
- so customers get the full Colemans offering in one
place - with excellent parking, disabled access and even
a lovely café. If you are bulk buying, just leave it behind
and they will deliver it to your premises as part of the

Colemans still have their excellent stores in Higham
Ferrers, Kettering, Northampton, Stamford, Bedford,
Towcester, Oakham, Market Harborough and Oundle,
where it also owns Oundle Bookshop.
