Fun fact: the company name “Manor” is a contraction of the founders’ names Maus and Nordmann.
The history of Manor begins at the end of the 19th century – indicative of the later development of the company – in French and German-speaking Biel. This is where the brothers and wholesale dealers Ernest and Henri Maus make friends with their customer, retailer Léon Nordmann. In 1902, the three far-sighted businessmen join forces to open the “Léon Nordmann” department store on Weggisgasse in Lucerne. Encouraged by its success in Central Switzerland, the Maus Brothers, whose wholesale business Maus Frères was headquartered in Geneva since 1901, are encouraging their customers to open their own department stores.
The company name Manor – composed of the name Maus and Nordmann – was created around 1965 to build a new corporate identity. Since 1994, all the department stores in German-speaking Switzerland that belong to the company have been renamed Manor, and since September 2000 all the stores in western Switzerland and Ticino as well.
Today, Manor AG is headquartered in Basel and a subsidiary of Maus Frères Holding in Geneva.
