Moving Into Our New Store
The first_ and third floors of the New Building are now in complete readiness
The first floor space contains the Woolen Dress Goods in black and colors, Silks,
Laces, Trimmings and Buttons.
It is fair to say that no store in the country is better arranged for the display of
these fabrics than our main floor in ihe New Building.
Plenty of room, plenty of natural light, up-to-date fixtures, experienced help and
the best assortmenis of merchandise that the market affords.
Linens have moved to the Broad Street side of the older building, formerly occu
pied by Silks and Dress Goods. Linings are near the Sixth Street door.
White Goods are now on the north side of the Sixth Street building in the space
formerly occupied by Linings and d.portion of the Dress Goods stock.
The thiiyl floor of the New Building is occupied by the best arranged and most
complete Carpet Store in the Sotith.
Carpets and Rugs in this house now have more floor space at their disposal than
in any store of similar size in the country.
The second floor and basement departments will moVe into their new quarters
just as rapidly as possible. The contractors, like ourselves, are anxious to hurry things
along, biit this store is to be a credit to Richmond, and to make it what we want it?
fVie finest in the South?takes a little time and care in attention to detail.
