Though the company has changed hands over its 186 year existence, the same standards of quality, selection, and service have remained intact.

Visitors to the shop in the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s will remember Joan Meehan, longstanding manageress of Turmeaus' Water Street location. A wealth of knowledge on anything fit for smoking, Mrs. Meehan was a fixture of downtown Liverpool for over 30 years.
