Bartlett's Hi-Fi was established in 1958 by Robert (Bobby) Bartlett, having grown from a market stall in Dalston to a shop in the Holloway Road. Bobby’s son, George, joined the business in the early 1960’s and worked alongside his father, taking over the running of the shop when Bobby’s health deteriorated.
George's interest in music began at school when his singing ability was noticed and he was chosen to play urchin parts at The Royal Opera House in Covent Garden in operas such as La Boheme with Maria Callas and Lucia di Lammermoor with Joan Sutherland, all directed by Franco Zeferrelli. Consequently Bartlett's Hi-Fi also caters for customers who enjoy classical music, stocking numerous products that will enhance the listening experience.
George continued to run the business over the next 50 years, always keeping up with the industry's developing technology and ensuring he had the right products for his customers. Following George's sudden death in June 2012, the business remains in the family and the Bartlett's tradition will carry on with the support of the talented and enthusiastic staff.
