Dalton Brothers became so successful that the store had to be replaced in 1860 by a double storey building with an elaborate facade.

This was altered and extended in 1871, and in 1875 an additional building was constructed next to it. A la ran between the two buildings to the large yard at th back. The store was said to be ‘an ornament to the to selling a wide range of products, including groceries, spirits, drapery, furniture, agricultural products and ironmongery.

site began in 1853, when
joined his father, James Dalton senior, at Summerhill near Orange in 1849. After the discovery of gold in Ophir in 1851, he started supplying the miners who flocked to the district with everything they needed. With his brother, Thomas, he set up what would become the largest department store in the area. The brothers also built a flour mill in the 1860s. James and his wife Margaret had 12 children and built their home ‘Duntryleague’ in 1876, named after his birthplace in County Limerick, Ireland. Both James and Thomas Dalton served as mayors of Orange, and the Dalton family became one of the richest and most influential Catholic families in New South Wales.
James Dalton junior opened a small slab and bark store on Summer Street. From the early 1850s, he had run a store in Byng Street with his father, former convict James Dalton senior, and now set out on his own. When his brother Thomas joined him in the early 1850s, they formed a partnership in 1858 trading as ‘Dalton Brothers’. The business was so successful that the first store on this site had to be replaced in 1860 by a double storey building with an elaborate facade.

“Dalton Brothers have lately increased their
already large premises, and everything from a needle to an anchor can be secured at prices never before heard of in this district.” (DALTON BROTHERS, MOLONG ARGUS, 1 MAY 1896, 2)
In 1895, the two buildings were combined into one large store by building over the laneway. This gave the store its unified frontage with a grand central entrance that still exists today. As the largest wholesaler and retailer west of the Blue Mountains, Dalton Brothers became known as ‘the store of the west’. Its success was to a great extent responsible for the development of Orange.
1960 THE WESTERN STORES AFTER ‘MODERNISATION’ IN THE 1960s (ORANGE AND DISTRICT HISTORICAL SOCIETY)
The store later became simply known as the Western Stores. The Western Stores chain operated in several central western NSW towns, including Bathurst, Cowra and Dubbo. In the 1960s, the building was ‘modernised’ with a new façade of metal sheeting.
During the second half of the 20th century the Western Stores became part of the Myer/Grace Bros. retail group. When the Grace Bros. building was incorporated into the Orange City Centre Development in the 1980s, the metal cladding was removed and the original façade partially restored. From 2004, the store was known as Myer. In 2017, Myer ceased operations in Orange. The site was redeveloped by Alceon Group in 2019 to continue the site’s long retail history.
