During the reign of Queen Victoria village shops expanded and became well known names, either as major shopping groups or as popular product brands, names such as Debenhams and Cow & Gate. It was also a period of travel and many items were brought into the country from distant lands, and the Great Exhibition of 1851 furthered this interest. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
