During the next decade the company took over three adjacent premises: in 1968, the wool shop at Number 68a; in 1972, the shoe shop at Number 70 was acquired, and a year later the semi-derelict Number 48 Park Row, which had been gutted by fire during the Blitz.
With expansion, the store's departments - especially china and glass and kitchenware - were reorganised and enlarged, along side the introduction of a new department, featuring furniture and soft furnishings.
1988 was the 80th anniversary of the Guild's founding, and it was decided to celebrate in some style, with craft demonstrations and competitions and a major exhibition, 'Eighty Years On', featuring many of the products sold over the years.
