Corporate Banking Client Stories - The House of Bruar

The House of Bruar

“Barclays has a depth of experience in the retail sector which we see as imperative for the growth of our business. The team at Barclays are committed to supporting our future plans and online growth objectives.”

Patrick Birkbeck, Managing Director, The House of Bruar

Scotland’s premier, independently owned, country fashion retailer is based in rural Perthshire. The House of Bruar stocks everything, from the latest rural fashions to a generous selection of home, kitchen and giftware.

  • Established in 1993 by the Birkbeck family, The House of Bruar will have their 25th anniversary in 2018. To further enhance the visitor experience, the House of Bruar offers a stunning selection of the best in Scottish food and drink in their Food Hall and Delicatessen, with a firm focus on locally sourced products from small artisan producers.
  • In addition, to help service their increasingly popular online and mail order business, they’ve opened a distribution centre nearby at Ballinluig.
  • We are proud to be working with The House of Bruar by providing a new, fully comprehensive banking package. It includes transactional and digital banking, as well as a range of future benefits for the business.
  • "We have a strong relationship with Patrick and the Bruar team, so we understand that local relationships, sector expertise and product offering were key factors. As well as delivering some financial and non-financial benefits. We look forward to working alongside The House of Bruar team to help them achieve their growth objectives.” Paul Smith, Corporate Development Director, Barclays.
