John Rennie & Co.

John Rennie & Co., Fruit Salesmen, &c., 100, Candleriggs.

    The business carried on by this firm is one of the most extensive of its kind in Glasgow. The firm has been in existence since 1879. When first started it was at 91, Candleriggs, whence it was removed to 86 in the same thoroughfare about the year 1881. In 1887 it was again removed to the present address. Mr. John Rennie is the sole partner and commands a large trade in all descriptions of fruit, vegetables, &c. Most of the fruit comes from the best growing districts of England, where the firm are well known among the leading growers.

    One very important feature of the business is the sale of seeds. A general fruit and vegetable trade is done among a large and widespread connection. They also supply the principal merchants, clubs, hotels, and other large institutions, &c. Mr. Rennie travels himself, and it is largely owing to his energy and ability in this direction that the trade has so rapidly developed. The business is very ably conducted, in every detail, and among firms of a similar description occupies a deservedly leading and important position.
