The 1980s… Arguably the greatest decade of the 20th Century for music, fashion and technology. But while Pac Man and MTV were just being born, Busseys celebrated the big 6-0!
In the late 1970s, Busseys and Sabberton Bros took on a lease at Whiffler Road for a combined Body and Paint Workshop known as ‘Tower House’. The old paintshop at Quayside was later sold in 1980.
The company also expanded its Palace Street site in the 80s, purchasing No. 15 and 17 to officially own the entire block bounding Palace Street, Quayside, Pigg Lane and Bedding Lane.
In 1983 Busseys acquired freehold of the Accident and Repair Centre in ‘Tower House’ at Whiffler Road, and in 1985 we celebrated an incredible 60 years of business!
We’ve dug up some great 80s gems from the Busseys archive, including newspaper excerpts, events and even our retro showrooms!
That’s it for our 80s era, tune back in next week for the 1990s!
