Wright & Greig

Wright & Greig, Wholesale Wine and Whisky Merchants, Cadogan Buildings, Cadogan Street.—

In reviewing the various branches of trade for which the commercial capital of the North is noted, prominent mention is justly due to the wine and spirit business, in connection with which there is no more representative or influential firm in the city than Messrs. Wright & Greig, formerly of 90, West Campbell Street. This business, which, by common consent, is one of the best of its class in the city, was founded a quarter of a century ago in Buchanan Street, from which the firm removed in 1876 to their late premises. So great, however, and so rapid has been the increase in the firm’s trade that they were obliged to choose one of two alternatives — either to enlarge their former premises or take more extensive and commodious ones, and this year they removed to their present headquarters as above.

These premises are of spacious extent, admirably fitted, and completely equipped for the carrying on of a business of the first importance. They have chosen the latter course, and quite recently have erected a pile of buildings, at the comer of Wellington and Cadogan Streets, which rank among the finest and most imposing in central Glasgow. The buildings consist of offices, cellarage, and warehouses. The basement floor is devoted to cellarage, particularly for the binning of wine, and covers an area of 5,300 square feet ; the street floor consists of offices and warehouse, with an area of 3,800 square feet, while on the entresol floor is a warehouse covering a space of 3,600 square feet. The total area of the building thus occupied by Messrs. Wright & Greig for their own business amounts to 12,700 square feet. The remainder of the block will be let as first-class offices.
