2003 - Sale of Pitlochry Shop....

Whilst the manufacturing and wholesaling arms of the business had grown dramatically during 1987-2003, the various retail businesses in Pitlochry was slowly disposed of. The final exit from “bricks and mortar” retailing occurred in 2003, with the sale of the flagship shop, Macnaughtons of Pitlochry, to another well known Perthshire family.
Further diversification into the furnishing market saw the purchase by the company of the Thomas Dare brand. This brand specialises in hand woven Indian cotton fabrics to the middle market.
