About us

Where did we come from?

Founded in 1830, Charles Fish are part of an independently owned, family run business with over 180 years (and counting!) of history behind us. We’re a bit old fashioned when it comes to looking after our customers. We’ve got a heritage to be proud of, and exceptional service is a huge part of this legacy. Named in honour of the founding member, ‘Charles Fish’ was launched in 2006. Charles Fish is part of ‘Fish Brothers Group’; a company formed of three businesses areas including two Charles Fish stores, nine Fish Brothers Pawnbrokers and one Charles Fish branded Swarovski store. 

Did you know?

  • We still have a genuine “Mr Fish” who is the Managing Director of Fish Brothers Group and other Fish family members are very much hands on in the company.
  • We’ve got many members on our company who boast over 25 years long service – and even more who’ve been with us their entire working life!
  • Each member of staff gets their birthday off every year.
  • To say thanks for hard work at Christmas, all members of Fish Brothers Group are given a generous contribution towards a team/store Christmas meal.

Where are we now?

Charles Fish can be found in the bustling high streets of Harlow and Chelmsford, Essex (and of course, online!). Within our stores, and on our website, you'll find an assortment of designer and trend pieces. We handpick each and every brand that we present in our store to ensure we have the best choice imaginable.
