A look back on Segal’s past, and their shiny new future
100 years ago in 1919, in a small shop on South Street in Hull, a business belonging to Jack Segal was born. Specialising in clock and watch repairs, it didn’t take long for Segal’s to become a household name and in 1921 as the business expanded to include the buying of gold, silver and antiques a move to larger premises was needed.
The new home of Segal’s was to be in Porter Street, a thriving part of Hull at the time for trading wares. Business was good until 1941 came and Hull saw the devastating effects of the blitz where many homes and lives were destroyed. Although large areas of Hull were bombed and had to be re-built, thankfully Segal’s narrowly missed the worst effects and continued to trade through the war years.
