McCalls owes it’s success to the application of a simple philosophy of “Good Value for Money & Top Quality Service”.
McCalls Limited was established in 1887 in Upperkirkgate, Aberdeen selling second hand goods, mainly clothing, by its founders Daniel McCall, an international auctioneer and his wife Annie McCall, a market trader who sold from a stall in the Castlegate area of Aberdeen.
The demand for second-hand clothing diminished with the influx of imported clothing and the rise of the high street stores. The increase in patriotic fervour and the desire to have a sense of belonging and affiliation made a good case for supplying Highlandwear. McCalls saw an opening to offer their expertise in all Highlandwear products whilst making their availability affordable through Hire. The acceptance was an unqualified success.
With outlets in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Elgin, Dundee Glasgow and Tillicoultry with an infrastructure which supports over 250 wholesale operations worldwide, McCalls is able to cater for any size of event or function. McCalls owes it’s success to the application of a simple philosophy of “Good Value for Money & Top Quality Service”.
