John Leckie was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1841. He travelled to Toronto in 1857, and began working with a wholesale drygoods firm. About 1862 he started his own drygoods business; he later specialized in fishing nets and twine products.

In the early 1890s, the J. Leckie Company established a branch in Vancouver. John’s sons, William Henry Leckie (1874-1930) and Robert James Leckie, managed the Vancouver branch. By the early 1900s, R.J. Leckie and Company also had a successful boot and shoe manufacturing business in Vancouver.
