Brief History on Myer
According to Wikipedia, the company retail group was started by Sidney Myer, who migrated from Russia to Melbourne in 1899 after the height of Victoria’s gold rush, with very little money and little knowledge of English to join his elder brother, Elcon Myer (1875–1938), who had left Russia two years earlier.
They opened the first Myer store in Bendigo, Victoria in 1900. After prospering, they opened a second store in Bendigo in 1908.
In 1911, the company purchased the business of Wright and Neil, Drapers, in Bourke Street, Melbourne, near the General Post Office, and a new building was completed and opened in 1914.
From this base in Melbourne, Myer built Australia’s largest chain of department stores and the only chain with stores in all Australian states. Myer grew by developing its own stores (becoming one of Australia’s major property owners and developers in the process) and acquiring other department stores.
They include Adelaide’s Marshall’s, Western Australia’s Boans in 1984, Queensland’s Barry & Roberts, and in New South Wales they acquired Western Stores, Farmers & Co in 1961, Mortimer’s (Gosford) in 1968, and Grace Bros. in 1983.
Myer has stores in all capital cities in Australia except Darwin. In addition, there are stores in Geelong, Ballarat, and Bendigo in Victoria, Albury, Wagga Wagga, Dubbo, Newcastle, Central Coast, and Wollongong in New South Wales, Launceston in Tasmania and Gold Coast, Toowoomba, Sunshine Coast, Mackay, Townsville, and Cairns in Queensland.
