Tindalls named a winner in Julian’s Discovering Cambridge competition
Thriving business, Tindalls, which grew from humble beginnings to become East Anglia’s leading independent stationer, has been named the October winner in MP Julian Huppert’s Discovering Cambridge competition.
The company, which has its Cambridge shop in King Street, won the category for the best arts and crafts business.
Tindalls dates back to the 1860s and was launched as a business printing sheet music in Newmarket.
One hundred years later it grew and expanded into commercial stationery supplying businesses with everything they need for the office. And by 2005 Tindalls had four shops, in Cambridge, Ely, Newmarket and Colchester specialising in stationery, art supplies and office furniture.
The company prides itself on having employees who have been with the business for a number of years contributing to its success and maintaining its traditional values.
Julian said: “I am delighted that Tindalls has won this month’s Discovering Cambridge competition. It is well-known and well-respected in Cambridge and across East Anglia with an impressive history proving that it has been able to move with the times but still hold on to its traditional values.
“I hope it will continue to go from strength to strength and wish it every success in the future.”
Julian launched Discovering Cambridge at the start of the year to recognise and celebrate the city’s independent businesses.
The overall competition winner will be named at the Mill Road Winter Fair in December.
