About us

Wards is a local, family-run business.  Our team are from the local community and Wards has been in Bexhill since 1928.  We aspire to play a part in continuing to make Bexhill a thriving and interesting town, providing visitors and local people with excellent service and products and maintaining a real choice in local shopping.

The original J&B Wards business specialised in menswear and schoolwear.  In 1985, a tea room and coffee shop was added.  In recent years ladieswear has become an important part of the business and we are now well known for a wide ranging and ever-changing selection of gifts. 

Today we are investing to modernise the business, improve the physical fabric of the store and add on-line services, fit for the next generation of shopping.
