Robert A. Reid

Robert A. Reid, Hosier and Glover, &c., 427, Sauchiehall Street.—

    A house of high repute in its line is that conducted by Mrs. Robert A. Reid, the sole proprietress, which was established by Mr. and Mrs. Reid at the present address in 1862. The premises consist of a large and commodious shop, with stock-rooms and other offices in the rear, the whole establishment presenting an excellent street frontage.

    A large and varied stock is held, consisting of the best manufactured hosiery, gloves, and linen outfitting goods, noteworthy specialities in the trade of the house being ladies’ marriage and babies’ outfits, for which it has a reputation second to none in the city. Excellent specimens of the products of the house are exhibited in the spacious and well-appointed shop windows. A very extensive local and country trade is enjoyed by the house, which is particularly well established among the principal aristocratic families. The chief feature of the business now is ladies’ and children’s underclothing, marriage and foreign outfits.

    Mrs. Reid attends personally to the wants of her numerous customers, and is ably assisted by several members of her own family.
