B.B.Adams was founded in 1958 by Barry Adams (the father of our current Managing Director, Dean Adams), who opened our first ever store in Regents Road, Great Yarmouth. In those days we sold watches and jewellery; there wasn’t a TV or radio in sight!
Within a couple of years, Barry had set up four more stores in Great Yarmouth; one of which focussed on selling electrical products. Barry had decided to diversify into selling transistor radios, which were all the rage at the time – he was always able to identify a trend in the market!
BB Adams disappeared on the public's radar for a period of years before re-emerging in 2011 as a new force in electrical retail in Norwich, Norfolk and East Anglia.
In addition to the retail business, we have a very high profile wholesale business, supplying to many smaller retailers and also offering corporate services. Take a look at our corporate website - http://www.bbadamstrade.co.uk for more information
