Wippell (J.) & Co. Ltd
J. Wippell & Co. Ltd is a long established Exeter firm of clerical outfitters and suppliers of church furnishings. It traces its Exeter roots to 1802, when Joseph Wippell set himself up as a specialist grocer. The business flourished and expanded into drapery and then tailoring, funeral direction, church decoration, and in 1896 stained glass.
Sadly in the summer of 2023 it was announced that the business would be closing at the end of the year.
