The original Store was opened by Hugh Brown at 16 Grafton Street in 1848. The following year, with James Thomas, he expanded into No.17. 'Brown-Thomas'.

In 1989, the company attempted to buy the Switzer Group, which included Switzers in Dublin, along with its sister stores Cashs of Cork, Moons of Galway and Todds of Limerick from House of Fraser but was outbid by the Ewart Group from Belfast. Ewart subsequently failed, as the deal could not be financed, allowing Brown Thomas to make a second bid in November 1990, which was accepted. The acquisition was subsequently completed on 16 April 1991.


And we were stuck with that Gomey name. Bring back Cashs.
