A Little About

History of Home Bargains

Home bargains was founded by Thomas Joseph Morris in 1976 and financed using his bank overdraft. He was 21 and had just finished a degree in engineering when the first store opened in Old Swan, Liverpool. Hard work was instilled into Tom and his six brothers and sisters, coming from a family that for generations had been shopkeepers. His mum and dad ran a shop on Scotland Road Liverpool called V’s named after his mum Veronica. The originally shop was called “Home and Bargain” until 1995 when the name changed to Home Bargains.
Tom grew the business organically with no debt on its books. The business model has seen fantastic growth with well over 500 stores nationwide. They are now breaking into the London market which Home Bargains had resisted due to high costs. TJ Morris Ltd is the umbrella company that owns Home Bargains they also purchased the Quality Save chain of discount stores on 26 January 2023.
Tom Morris is not one to court the limelight and is notoriously publicity shy. He still owns a hefty percentage of the company up-to 89% with the rest of the shares believed to be in a family trust. It’s basically a family owned company and one of the biggest in the UK. Tom still lives in Liverpool, Albert Dock. His brothers and children are involved in the running of the controlling company trading as TJ Morris.
All the retail industry analyst experts can’t work out why Home Bargains are so successful. But Tom Morris has a very basic way of approaching retail. Keep overheads down, negotiate hard for stock and try and sell cheaper than the rest.
