Charles Miller, 74, who worked in the family business for 60 years, said he had mixed feelings about the end of an era.
“We are all extremely sad to see the shop close,” he said. “But we’ve had many fantastic years and are really proud of the business – 111 years is a tremendous achievement.”
Bruce Millers was first opened in George Street in 1900, by Charles’ late grandfather Charles Bruce Miller, and it quickly struck a chord with Aberdeen music fans.
Charles Bruce Miller founded the shop in 1900
“By 1921 my father, also Charles, and my uncle, William, helped my grandfather with the business, They did extremely well and it flourished as a business. They had a contract with the firm HMV so they could get the latest records.”
When Charles’ grandfather died, his dad, uncle and grandmother Isabella, took it on.
The shop was upgraded and underwent a huge expansion in the 1950s.
