The company began on the property at 8 Market Place, Holt, it was built in 1631, the date set in the west gable end. It has continuously served the area as a shop since 1730 or thereabouts, with the involvement of the Baker family beginning in the 1760′s or 1770′s. The offer to our customers went through several incarnations before developing into the multifaceted emporium of today: Blacksmith, Brewer, Builders’ Merchant, Ironmonger, Plumbers to mention but a few, and expanded throughout the period.
On 22 November 1900 the firm was incorporated as CT Baker Ltd.
By 1958, having survived two World Wars, the Company employed 29 staff and was heavily into agricultural supplies. With the untimely death of Mr Jimmy Baker, the Managing Director, the next 15 years saw a period of decline, culminating in the near sale of the family business. However, the 70s witnessed a turnaround with a new generation coming onto the Board. Expansion was the order of the day and it all began during the worst recession of the latter part of the 20th Century, inflation went up to 26% with interest rates at 15%, and power 3 days a week.
