Archibald Hoy, Family Grocer, Wine Merchant, and Italian Warehouseman, Downie Place, Partick.—
Mr. Archibald Hoy commenced business in the West End of Glasgow in 1840, and in the year 1847 came to the present premises, and his emporium may, therefore, be legitimately termed “old-established”. The premises have been enlarged from time to time, and now they occupy very extensive premises, besides an extensive cellarage.
They comprise a capital comer shop of attractive appearance, handsomely fitted up and appointed, and admirably adapted to the requirements of the trade carried on, namely, that of a grocer, Italian warehouseman, and wine and spirit merchant. The stock is of far more than average dimensions, and of splendid quality. The assortment of wines and spirits is large and choice. The connection is a first-class one, and is not confined to Partick, but extends to the surrounding districts, is of a most influential character, and thoroughly reliable. The business is conducted with great ability, and no house in Glasgow, in this line, enjoys a higher repute.
Although the founder has passed away, it is still carried on under the energetic management of his son, Mr. Richard H. Hoy, who enjoys the popularity so freely accorded to his father.
