Lesley's Business Machines now LBM was established in 1959 by Douglas Hagger, mainly selling typewriters and furniture to the local business community.
It seemed a natural progression to diversify into supplying office and retail stationery from the original premises on Bancroft, Hitchin, swiftly becoming one of the biggest commercial and retail stationers in the county.
Following Douglas’ retirement in 1990, the business was taken over by his son Paul. Paul has brought further strength and diversity to an already thriving company.
In 1999 LBM opened a specialised art store, selling a full range of artist products from all the leading brands. Our resident artist is always on hand to give expert advise.
2010 sees the launch of our online stationery and art supplies shops. Making us one of the largest retails in Europe
We also have a very busy Ebay Shop selling a range of specialist and one off products.
We look forward to meeting you.
Our opening hours are 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday and 9pm to 4pm on a Saturday.
