When the Stevens company closed in Coventry, the business was taken over by Brough, Nicholson & Hall. In the early days of the combined Stevens and Brough, Nicholson & Hall, the company maintained two separate customer lists, and were apparently so successful that no customers were aware of the joint activity.
