Judith Glue established her business in 1976 originally making her own leatherwork and then her collection of Orkney Knitwear which is still made today. She expanded with her shop in Inverness nine years ago and then the Real Food Cafe situated at the back of her original shop in Orkney eight years ago along with building an online purchasing website. Judith and her husband David bought The Store originally known as "Leonards Store" in 2011 and after a considerable hands on renovation project they opened it as The Storehouse Restaurant with Rooms in 2018, yet adding another branch to their ever expanding business .
