Does anyone recall a D M Hoey, I think that they were on the corner of Henderson street and Maryhill road.


I recall the name, but they must have had other branches, as that is not my territory.

The last time I was in Arnott's , it was a shopping day for my mother and I . I was on a visit from Canada at that time it was a great day and she bought a beautiful new coat in that Store .

Also the last time I was there , not too long ago " . It is a crime what has happened too Sauchiehall St. It was always my favourite shopping area.

I agree Angel, the last time I was in Glasgow I was shocked at what had happened to Sauchiehall Street. It was always our shopping area and my Mum and I loved the shops there and as our bus took us along Bath Street, we did all our shopping on Sauchiehall Street. I bought my wedding dress in Watt Bros. which then was a really nice store. We were rarely in Argyle Street so didn't know Lewis' very well.

Aye Norrie, you are right, there was a Hoey's at St. George's Cross. That is where we went for our School Uniform's.

the last time I was in Glasgow I was shocked at what had happened to Sauchiehall Street.

It's not just me, then. My last visit to Sauchiehall Street was last Tuesday, and if I'd thought that Princes Street in Edinburgh had been ruined by gaudy cheap shops and garish classless shop fronts, I was unprepared for how miserably low Scotland's most famous street had become. It had been bad enough when the beautiful old Grand Hotel building was pulled down, ostensibly to make way for the motorway, but then a ghastly cube of a hotel put up in its place, but that only presaged what was to become of the rest of the street.

I used to work in the city centre many years ago, and spent many a happy lunchtime wandering along Sauchiehall Street, sometimes having lunch in one of the fine restaurants, sometimes spending time in record shops like Biggars (thankfully still there, but seemingly no longer a record shop), or along to Cuthbertsons, no longer there. The whole thing just looks shoddy now. No class. No style.

Argyle Street is no better. Just a string of tacky pound shops.

My wife had a Saturday job at that branch of Woolworths when she left school at 14. Sweets were still rationed, so it goes without saying that her favourite job was working on the sweets counter.

I too worked in the city centre years ago , " West George St "
and would spend my time walking up Hope St.to Sauchiehall St.,
weather permitting , on my lunch break .
It was a wonderful place for me , so many people doing their thing
and I just strolled along in and out of those wonderful stores ,
wishing I had more money , but on a Saturday ,along with a
couple of pals we would make our way there and try on ladies outfits
in a few stores but the best part was trying on the ladies hats ,
now that was a scream , cool3.gif and if we had a date on a Fri night
we would go dancing for the under 25s

I believe that Sauchiehall St was part of the Glasgow Heritage and as
such ,should have been a protected area .
