The department store group, Manor, goes back well over a hundred years when two wholesalers, Ernest and Henri Maus together with Léon Nordmann opened the store under the name, Léon Nordmann at the Weggisgasse in Lucerne. This retail venture is regarded as the real home and beginning of the entire present retail conglomerate. Later, the name Manor came into being…. a combination of the founders’ Maus and Nordmann surnames… but did not appear until a new corporate identity was adopted in about 1965. It was not until 2000, that all the stores is Switzerland finally carried the name. The standardized name has provided Manor with clearer identification and a nationwide presence.
Manor is still 100% owned by the founding families and their successors.
