Mackenzie & Co.
Mackenzie & Co., Lacemen, Hosiers, and Glovers, 341, Sauchiehall Street.—
A celebrated house in its line is that of Messrs. Mackenzie & Co., which was established in the same thoroughfare in 1878, and has been conducted at the present address since 1883. The premises consist of a handsome edifice, with a large double-fronted shop.
The stock held, which is very large, consists of first-class Paris lace goods, such as caps and other made-up articles ; also a large assortment of novelties in parasols, frillings, coloured sets, fancy aprons, &c. The stock of gloves is very complete : cashmere, Balbriggan, Lisle thread, silk, and spun silk stockings in black and leading shades are also shown. An extraordinary cashmere stocking, plain and ribbed, with double-spliced heels and feet, constitute a noteworthy speciality. A full staff of assistants is employed.
A high-class local trade is conducted among the aristocratic families in the West End, and a general trade among residents in the suburbs. Mr. John Mackenzie, the proprietor, is a gentleman of practical experience in every branch of the business, and highly esteemed by his patrons.
