Our History


The name ‘Groves and Sons’ has been synonymous with business excellence since 1903. Formed by Charles Edward Groves as Groves and Company, and later named Groves and Sons after Charles’ sons Cecil and Neville, Groves and Sons remained in business until the mid-1970s, ultimately focused on retailing menswear in Sydney’s inner west.

The current incarnation of Groves and Sons is led by Charles’ great grandson, Philip, his wife Olivia, and their children, Pippa, Sam, Jake, and Ava. Whilst no longer strictly only Groves and ‘Sons’, we are a proud family business committed to the original values of quality and customer service, which sees the name of Groves and Sons enter its second century.
