Biography/History

Waltons was an Australian department store chain, founded by John Robert Walton (1904-1998) who bought a menswear store in 1951, located in George Street, Sydney, New South Wales. In 1955, he formed an alliance with the American retail giant Sears and Roebuck, and then Waltons Limited bought out Marcus Clark & Co. in 1966, and then Anthony Hordern & Sons forming the Walton's store group before aquiring McDowell's Holding Ltd in 1971. By 1972, the Waltons chain had expanded to 96 department stores. Alan Bond bought Waltons Ltd. in 1981, and split up Waltons in 1987 due to financial failure.
