T like to be driven home, but replied

to the intersection of Second Street

Move Info New
Business Home
September 10
by •
The Geringer Hardware this week
announces its move into the new
building which has just been com
pleted ? n the 400 bldck on Mineral
avenue. The company's new home
is without doubt the finest business
building in the county, and would
be a worthwhile addition to the
business section of any community,
The Geringers, who began their
business life in Libby June 9. 1941,
have long looked forward to the
tune when their hardware store
would have such a home, and the
I realization of these plans is a dream
come true.
The new building which was
started in June of 1948 has been
delayed in completion for months
on account of the difficulty of secur
ing the tvoe of materials desired
by Mr. Geringer, who built the
building himself, overseeing all the
material and work that has gone
into its making. He admits that
he could have completed the proj
604 earlier but he was unwilling to
compromise quality in the use of
materials, so waited until he could
fl , n ï h .,î*" building with the type
of building supplies he desired for
use in the project.
The building wmch is 45 x: 10*.
feet, 18 built from pumice ouilding
blocks. It contains a full basemen
wh 'ch has been sealed with aquella,
It con tains 120,000-lbs. of channel

and seven carloads of cement. Over f
three miles of electric wire and two
( miles of conduit were used in its D
construction. The exterior walls
are waterproofed with Aquella on
the inside, are stripped out and
lathed ''' ith fteel1 lath, then given £
3 sc ' a tch coat and a brown coat of
Zonolite plaster over which a finish
has been a PP l >ed consisting of pum
alite sand and plaster.
The insulation between the up
stairs floor and the ground floor is

upstairs ceilinv also has four inches

Living apartments have been
built in the northwest corner of the
ground floor which will be occupied
by Mr. and Mrs. Geringer. The
hardware department occupies the
south two-thirds of this floor ex
tending from front to back of the
building with an elevated office,
13 x 16 feet in the back of the
room. Between the office and the
back door is a pit ready for the
installation of an elevator when the
same is available.
As one enters the front door on
the attractive tiled floor, two six
foot by 32-foot double deck display
islands greet the eye. One 10-foot
aisle extends the full length of the
store, which also has two other
commodius aisles. The hardware de
partment contains 90 feet of display
shelving which is enclosed with dis
P la / . doors along the south wall
and is fitted with a complete bolt
rack and a complete pipe fitting
rack. There is also an enclosed
screw rack made by Mr. Geringer,
himself, which segregates all types
of screws for convenient handling.
H. Kennedy, who came here
last July from Seattle where he has
been engaged in the furniture and
hârdware business, has leased space
in the new building and will occupy
a portion of the north one-third of
the ground floor. Mr. Kennedy in
r •uu'ï m 9 nths be has operated in
Libby has built up a nice business,
rie will own and operate his own
furniture business and will carry
a complete stock of the best quality
up-to-the-minute furniture obtain
able.
The Geringers expect to open for
business in their new location. Fri
day, but Mr. Geringer states there
are, a number of finishing touches
which remain for him to put on
the new building, which will be
done as quickly as possible, and
that he plans to landscape the
grounds south of the building, mak
mg his surroundings attractive to
home folks and those who pass
through the business section of Lib
by.
