Macdonald Butcher's Family History
Over 80 years of history
David Robb MacDonald was born in Dundee, Scotland in 1911 and opened his first shop on Logie Street, Lochee in 1935. In a short time, David realised that there was a thriving demand for meat among the residents of Dundee and decided to move into a bigger shop on the High Street of Lochee. A few years later, and after relocating the business twice, the MacDonald & Son name is still just as popular as it was over 80 years ago.
Julie Schofield nee MacDonald & Jack
Brian’s daughter, Julie, is the latest addition to the family business and certainly adds a little glamour to butchery trade. Both Julie and her husband Bobby now manage the family business and will continue to produce the quality products the business is known for. In May 2019, Bobby and Julie had their first child, Jack, and maybe one day he will be a 4th generation MacDonald & Son family butcher.
