Jenners Department Store Edinburgh by House of Fraser

Jenners Department Store, now known simply as Jenners, is a department store located in Edinburgh, Scotland, and was the oldest independent department store in Scotland until its acquisition by House of Fraser in 2005.

The original buildings that formed the department store were destroyed by fire in 1892. In 1893 the Scottish architect William Hamilton Beattie was appointed to design the new store, which opened in 1895.

This historic Edinburgh building is designated as a category A listed building. It is noted by the statutory listing that, at Charles Jenner’s insistence, the building’s caryatids were intended ‘to show symbolically that women are the support of the house’. The new store included many technical innovations such as electric lighting and hydraulic lifts.

Known as the “Harrods of the North” the department store has held a Royal Warrant since 1911.
