Established in 1903 as a drapery store, it expanded to become a department store.

Evening Star, 28th march 1913, page 5.

In 1987 they took over the  D.I.C. stores, including the old Christchurch Beath’s store. (See the Beath’s entry 13th June). They ceased operating in 2015.

A fire had gutted the Dunedin store in 1959, but it was rebuilt the following year.
