Biographical Note

Ernest Eugene McIntyre was born in Blue Hill, Maine in 1880 and died there in 1957. He owned McIntyre's Market in Blue Hill between 1914 and 1957. He had bought it from his uncle, Harvey McIntyre, for whom he worked. He operated it until his health failed in 1945, when Harold Bisset managed it. The following year, Wilbur McIntyre, Ernest's son, returned from World War II and took over the management of the store. Ernest McIntyre rented space for his store in the Copper and Gold Exchange Building in 1914. In 1920 he bought a building nearby on Main St. and moved his market. His family lived above the store. In 1949 the business expanded to include rental frozen food lockers. In 1957 the market was sold to Merrill Leach and became Merrill's Market. In 1964 Merrill's Market closed, and it was taken over by Gordon Robbins and the name was changed to Robbin's Market. The property was purchased from Lena McIntyre, Ernest's wife, by Robbins in 1967.
