Newspapers and journals: Notice of sale of Pretor's shop, Sherborne, 1795

Date: 10 Jul 1795
Place: Sherborne (Town), Dorset, England

Mr. Pretor thinks it highly proper, if not necessary, to inform his friends and the public that he has declined his trade as a GROCER, at the upper end of the Shambles, in favour of JOHN and WILLIAM ENSOR, the latter of whom served his apprenticeship in London, and resided in that city the last ten years. Mr. Pretor begs leave to recommend them to the favour of his friends and customers, believing they are every way well qualified to serve them on as good terms as he himself has done.
- Mr Pretor takes this opportunity to return his most sincere thanks for the favours he has received for so many years past, and will think himself particularly obliged to such of his customers as will continue their favours to his successors, whom he verily believes will exert their best endeavours to give satisfaction.
As Messrs. Ensors have retained Mr. Pretor’s late shopman, Robert Gumbleton, in their service, he will be much obliged to such of his customers as can make it convenient to settle their accounts with him, or with Daniel Penny, at the Bank, who are duly authorised to give discharges in his name.
