McCullagh & Bothwell was established in 1896 by Messrs McCullagh and Bothwell in Kimberley. It has remained a family business, with descendents of Sam Bothwell owning and running the company to this day.
McCullagh & Bothwell opened its first store in Johannesburg in 1906. We currently have three stores in Johannesburg, located in Hyde Park, Observatory, and Fourways.
The name McCullagh & Bothwell has for many years been synonymous with the supply of school uniforms. We are extremely proud to be associated with many of Johannesburg’s, and indeed the country’s, best known schools and in many cases this association is a long standing one. We strive to provide the highest levels of service and unparalleled customer attention, and we are proud of our track record of providing sustainable and appropriate uniform solutions for our schools and their communities.
We offer far more than just a retail service to parents. Our experience, knowledge and skills, combined with our industry relationships, allow us to offer complete uniform solutions to schools. This service includes uniform advice and designing services, dependable supply and reasonable prices. This service is underscored by a commitment to service excellence and an absolute focus on the needs of the school and its community. As a part of this customer centric approach, we also offer a wholesale solution, and have pioneered a very successful uniform consignment solution.
Apart from our school uniform business, we have a long history in men's outfitting.
