The Kilt Hire Co began hiring & selling kilts in 1991, in the town of Musselburgh, on the East coast of Scotland. Our first premises were in one of the town's smallest shops, so small you could touch both walls at once!
Our reputation for keen pricing and commitment to excellent customer service quickly grew, with regular customers coming back time and time again to both hire and buy. Since those early days, we have expanded and moved premises three times in Musselburgh before finally settling in our very successful Bridge Street site.
Our Edinburgh Kilt Hire Branch Opens
In 1994 we expanded and opened our second store at Haymarket Terrace in central Edinburgh.
Our Edinburgh store was bursting at the seams with customers and stock. So much so that in April 1999, we expanded the store to incorporate the vacant unit next door, trebling the floor space and allowing us to not only to offer a wider selection of kilts and highland wear, but a superb selection of morning and evening wear as well.
Kilt Hire Warehouse
April 2002 saw a further expansion of the business and a change of philosophy from individual stores with individual stock, to a central warehousing unit, located just outside Dalkeith. This is where all of our hired outfits are cleaned, prepared and dispatched to the branches for collection. We also opened a small retail space at the warehouse in Hardengreen, Dalkeith, to add to our existing stores.
Our Dundee Kilt Hire Branch Opens
Our new concept store in Dundee was opened in December 2005.
We created a new, fresh and exciting store, where visitors are given a 3D visual experience.
In September 2006 our corporate image was given a fresh, modern look and we refurbished our now flag-ship Haymarket branch, giving the store a feeling of more space and a contemporary vibe in keeping with today's modern High Street, totally different to any kilt store we have ever seen before.
This bold new move has taken us into the next century.
