7. No. 99

New Look formerly Groves

By Jim Devlin

In earlier times this building was a shop and dwelling house. The shop frontage was only below the gable on the left hand side and the right hand side was set back with a bay window, it was known as Almar House.

When the building was purchased by Mr Groves he remodeled the building to provide a full width shop front. Groves was the Gents outfitters for Billericay and sold all sorts of men's clothing. In the early 1990s the the shop was taken over by New Look with women's clothing.
