Chartered architect Andrew McRae is one of Edinburgh’s most prominent independent retailers. Andrew and his wife Alice employ 20 people in the UK, and ten more in Hong Kong.
After graduating from Edinburgh College of Art (ECA) he joined one of the city’s most successful architectural practices and was conservation architect for the Signet Library.
He spent eight years working with John Lewis Partnership, first as a schoolboy aged just 15, and throughout his student years at ECA. Drawing on professional experience in design and conservation, Andrew developed a new retail concept in 2007 focusing on a curated collection of home interior and unusual gift ideas. Under the Context Interiors brand he rolled the concept out through operations in Hong Kong; online; and in premises in Edinburgh’s Old Town.
Since taking on the lease for 40 Victoria Street - the cobbled street in Edinburgh’s Old Town cited by many as JK Rowling’s inspiration for Diagon Alley - he has expanded stock to include quality licensed film merchandise alongside other curios. The shop has quickly become a magnet for Harry Potter fans worldwide.
Andrew has been a member of the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) since 2008 and has used the organisation’s services to grow and protect his business.
