We have a long and proud history, commencing trading in 1918 on Chapel Street, Prahran, Victoria. Adairs later became established as a mini department store in Camberwell, which until 1980, stocked manchester, curtains, ladies wear and haberdashery.
In 1981 the first incarnation of a modern Adairs boutique was opened in Doncaster Shoppingtown. The success of this format saw the opening of another 4 stores in 1984. These stores were also in Victoria the Brandon Park, Chadstone, Frankston and Northland shopping centres.
Since then the group has grown to in excess of 100 stores nationally.
In November of 2007, the MacLean family sold their majority stake in the business to BBRetail Capital Pty Ltd.
In December 2010 Adairs was acquired by Catalyst Investment Managers in partnership with the company’s existing executive management team and BB Retail Capital (BBRC). Adairs is now known as the Adairs Retail Group (ARG).
