Grindery merchant cartoon by Brian

We went shopping in Cookstown recently. Angela bought a pair of shoes. The bag she carried them home in was labelled with the shop's name, followed by the words:- Boot, Shoe, Leather and Grindery Merchants.

"Grindery Merchants"? What's a grindery merchant, and how can it be associated with selling shoes?
Any thoughts?

A grindery warehouse is a place where leather workers tools etc are sold.
