GREAT BUSINESS BUILT BY CITY SHOE DEALER Constant Effort by Bernard Katchinski Produces Splendid Results Thirty-two years ago Bernard Kat chinski opened a shoe shop at what is now 10 Third street. His only assist ant was an errand boy. He slept and cooked his meals in a small room in the rear of the shop. He had previ ously been a barber in Sacramento. Today the same Bernard Katchlnskl is proprietor of the Philadelphia shoe store, which occupies three floors in the 25 foot front building at 825 Mar ket street. He has about 150 em ployes. He lives in a sumptuous man sion at 399 Webster streets, owns ex tensive real estate in the Western Addition and elsewhere and has re cently purchased the Orpheum annex. 167 O'Farrell street. The Philadelphia shoe store has been inporporated, and within the present year Mr. Katchin skl's two sons. Alfred and Harold, have been taken into the firm as mem bers. .The Philadelphia shoe store is rated as the fourth largest in the United States, being excelled only by three eastern concerns. It is the largest on the Pacific coast. Mr. Katchinski h?s applied himself industriously and persistently to his business ever since he started it t% years ago in the little Third street shop. Step by step he has risen, con stantly expanding and bettering his business, which has srnwn each year. Like the other merchants of this city, he suffered in the tire of 1906, but im mediately resumed business at 1541) Fillmore street, where he remained until his present new store was com pleted about a year ago. "I do not believe in charging high prices and having slow sales." said Mr. Katchinski yesterday, in review ing his successful career as a mer chant. "I do believe in a minimum of profit and a maximum of sales." To this - policy he attributes much of his remarkable success. Mr. Katehlnskl was married 1884, and besides the two sons, now his partners in business, has a daughter. He is a member of the present grand jury and is one of .San Francisco's most public spirited citizens. song, "A Bowl of Roses"; composition, "The Miking of an American," Margaret Grossmann; presentation of diplomas.
