Company history

McDonalds and Wylie & Lochhead traded in neighbouring stores in Buchanan Street during the first half of the twentieth century. During the 1950s both companies were acquired by the House of Fraser Ltd, and both stores were initially allowed to continue trading independently. However, in 1966, the two stores were linked, trading as McDonalds, Wylie & Lochhead. In 1975, this merger was taken a stage further by the amalgamation of the shops of Fraser Sons & Co and McDonalds, Wylie & Lochhead as a single department store, Frasers, on the west side of Buchanan Street, Glasgow.
