The Kilt & Thistle Scottish Shoppe
The Retail Shop and the Kilts.com Team
We opened for business on December 6th 1996 as
The Tartan & Thistle Scottish Shop. We changed our name some years later to The
Kilt & Thistle Scottish Shoppes with the advent of our internet business.
With the web address www.kilts.com this
allows our customers to find using the search word kilt, or the plural kilts.
The Kilt & Thistle has also allowed the non-Scottish to know what we do, as the
word tartan is relatively unknown to the uninitiated. Since we started in
Salem , Oregon as a small retail store before the internet was a household word,
we never expected to be more than a family hobby business. The internet has
allowed us to reach the thousands of Scots in the world that are not near a
Scottish Shop. However our retail store regularly has customers from as
far North as Canada, and as far South as San Francisco and Sacramento.
Even though much of our competition does not have the expense of a retail store,
operating out of their garage or basement, we feel it is important for our
customers to have the option to see the merchandise before you buy. Also
as consumers ourselves we like to deal with a business that actually has a
business address that gives the business a legitimate existence. Thousands of
happy customers have allowed us to grow over the years, enlarging our retail
location four times. This growth has given us an opportunity to add many great
people to help us bring you the best in Highland Clothing. Click here to see the whole team.
Unlike many web sites, we actually have a retail
location, the one you see pictures of. We also attend about twelve Highland
Games and Festivals each year. You see we like to talk to you and share our
common Heritage .
