The Picture Looks Bright For Hickmans 

Well known TV & electrical name re-opens in Old Town
Hickmans, one of best-known names for TV and electricals in Swindon, is back on the high street.
The store closed suddenly in April this year after trading for 80 years but has been bought by another well-known name, Burden Electronics, and re-opened again in Old Town.

Back in business:

"It made total sense take the business on," said Randy Burden, pictured above, centre, alongside his family and staff.
"Burden's and Hickmans had been friendly rivals in Swindon for nearly half a century and we've taken the opportunity build on the good customer service Hickmans was always known for."
To that end, previous manager Colin Small, a familiar face at Hickmans for 22 years, has been recruited as well as service manager Keith Bailey.
In addition to TVs and servicing, Hickmans will now also be offering a complete range of domestic appliances including washing machines, dishwashers, fridges and freezers.

The Old Town showroom was officially re-opened by Old Town Business & Professionals Chairman Iain Black who was delighted to see the business back in Victoria Road.
"It's especially good for Old Town and good for Swindon as a whole to have strong independent name back trading again," he said.
