History of Rioux & Pettigrew

Marcellin Pettigrew, originally from Isle-Verte, was entrusted to the Rioux family of family, who operated a grocery store. Sacks of flour and rice were sold, preserves, tea, wine and liqueurs. On Mr. Rioux’s death, the grocery store was entrusted to Marcelin, in exchange for a guarantee that he would look after his widow. The name “Rioux” was retained in his honor, although only Marcelin and his 4 sons ran the grocery thereafter. Rioux & Pettigrew became the most important food wholesaler in Quebec City. Marcelin’s son Lucien bought out his brothers’ shares in 1950, and later sold the company around 1957.
