A Brief History


Glencrest was founded in 1996 by brothers Ross and Fraser Gourlay.

The business evolved from the family retail business of Delicatessen & Convenience stores.

In the early days the business operated from a small garage selling mainly clearance lines procured on night trips to wholesalers in England, in between shifts in the retail stores and delivered in an old Transit Van.

It was clear there was a large market for a delivery service to local businesses with a more formal product offering and quickly the business grew to service that market moving progressively in to larger premises over a period a couple of years and now operates from our 20,000 sq ft modern warehouse and yard in the west end of Glasgow.

The Business has grown steadily over those years and is now managed by the next generation of the family, Kari & Cameron, which since their involvement has seen a significant expansion of the business.
