Trimingham’s X CLOSED
Bermuda's oldest iconic department store Trimingham’s closed down permanently in July 2005. From a very humble beginning, the store had grown into a giant with a comprehensive range of designer goods such as perfume and clothing. Trimingham’s used to be a very popular shop particularly with the cruise ship visitors docking at Hamilton. However sadly, they could not sustain the business.
