Young was a native of the Black Isle and began his apprenticeship in a draper's shop in Dingwall. Chapman was the son of a Leicestershire farmer. He chose to go into the drapery trade and met up with Young while they were both learning the trade in London. Their first shop was in Church Street, Inverness.

The shops were totally rebuilt internally, creating the large store which can be seen in this photograph
