Our Story

Who are we?

McKays are a second generation family business selling flooring, furniture and other lovely products for your home or interior design project. We have been trading since 1972 and have over 40 employees. 

A History of McKays

We first opened our doors as a company when our founder Archie McKay set up as a independent flooring supplier and installer in Glasgow in 1972. Operating the business from his house he quickly grew the firm by taking on floor contracting projects for many of the main building contractors of that time. Identifying the growing market in wood flooring Archie began to concentrate our services towards the traditional solid wood flooring installation, floor sanding and sports flooring.

The first store and showroom was opened in the old St Anthony's League of the Cross Hall in Govan in 1979 and showcased the growing range of wood floors including Junckers, Havwoods and Bruce Flooring from the United States.

With a lot of hard work and enthusiasm the showroom fast became a place people were talking about. Archie enjoyed getting to know the new customers and sharing his expert knowledge of the products. 

It would be an understatement to say that a lot has happened between those early days and today. In 2017 our online store offers not only flooring but also our large furniture collection, wall cladding and other finishes and accessories. As we move into our 45th year we're delighted to extend our online product offerings and look forward to serving new customers whilst remaining a close knit family business.
