James Barclay Furnishings is owned and run by proprietor Mr James Barclay who started life as an apprentice upholsterer with a local Perthshire company Thomas Love & Sons.

After completing a 5 year apprenticeship Mr Barclay left to train with Allied Hotel Company in upholstery and also carpet refurbishing.

It was here where is gained valuable experience in re-furbishing.

In 1968 he decided to start his own business, so working from his parents’ home in North Methven Street Perth he embarked on a lifetime ambition 

It was not long before business started to grow and just after one year he opened his first shop at 98 Canal Street Perth.

In the days when rent was a £1.00 per week plus rates, business was quickly growing and within 3years Mr Barclay found himself moving into new premises at 36 Leonard Street Perth.

Business continued to grow and once again he found himself outgrowing his premises, so when the opportunity arose to purchase 2 Glasgow Road Perth and able to gain 18000 sq ft of retail area to build a shop containing all furnishing for the home he quickly decided that this was the way forward.

With 50 years of experience Mr Barclay runs a successful family business in the heart of Perth.
