The family business known as RIVA was first established in the old market town of Dolgellau in 1979, trading under the name Mervinian House, so called because that was the name of the building in Meyrick Street, Dolgellau. It was quickly followed by the opening of the second branch in 1980 in the seaside town of Barmouth. Both shops became an immediate hit with both locals and visitors alike.

By the early 90`s Joe was in charge of manufacturing our own label clothing and there were branches in Dolgellau, Barmouth, Porthmadog, Bala, Llanrwst and Conwy.

After 20 years of trading we felt a new more modern image was needed and RIVA was born...the name was created using letters from Mervinian.

Today - The business has reverted back to the 2 original shops in Dolgellau and Barmouth, where we feel we can offer true personal service, run by three generations of our family, Babs (Wendys Mum), Wendy & Joe and their daughter Hayley. Hayleys partner Stig has joined the family business, taking over the running of the website.

Wendy has always had an eye for choosing the right styles, a skill of which has been passed down to Hayley.

Remarkably after 38 years in retail we are still full of enthusiasm for fashion and take great pride in trying to give excellent service with a smile.

We have recently restructured our website to offer all our end of lines at bargain prices.
