Len Mutton & Co was recently awarded as the Oldest Family Business in the ACT Region. See this week's Braidwood Times for a four page feature 'remembering Mutton's'.
Fiona Putra Jaya (nee Mutton) recalls that Mutton's was established in 1913 by my Great Grandfather Edward Norman Mutton, and the shop operated as a true general store specialising in quality tailoring for both men and woman, Fashion & Footwear as well as extensive Homewares and Haberdashery ranges.
In the 1940's my grandfather Leonard Norman Mutton purchased the business from his father and along with his wife Isobelle Mutton continued to operate a very successful business until Len’s death in 1976.
Len’s children Brian and Janelle, and Brian’s wife Ann Marie Mutton inherited the business and it continued to trade under their guidance until Brian’s death in 1998. Brian & Ann Marie’s daughter, Fiona and son in law Ling moved to Braidwood in 1999 and we continue to manage the business to this day.
Len Mutton & Co is housed in an historic building circa 1888. Respectful of our family heritage we continue to play an important role in the local community offering a huge and diverse range of products.
Our motto remains "Something for Everyone at Len Mutton & Co"
