With the new year a week old, Wilmington gains another industry. and a big cue, in the location of the Llird Department SMues, said io be the largest uierchandiiiu timi in the whole south. A deal was t cnstiiunt ed yesterday uheteby Ihe Einstein building on the corner of Front and Grace streets, with a huge slock ol dry goods was purchased. The price was withheld, bill it is claimed that the deal is one of Ihe largest of the kind completed In the state in recent years. Open in (iO Days. M'ithin 60 days, J. U. Ellrd. presi dent of the company, expects to be ready for business with a complete new stock of seasonable merchandise bought in New Vork expressly for the new store, which it is his intention to make one of the leading merchandis ing renters In the south. The sen lets of an architect arp being secured in order to have the front remodeled and interior changes made including the installation of fast passenger elevators. The whole live floors will be occu pied by the store. The fifth will be largely devoted to o restauiant where lunch and early dinner will be served amid artistic and thoroughly hyide nic surroundings. The cafe will be a strong feature of the new store and no expense Is being spared to insure the daintiest sort of environment, and the most up-to-date kitchen and dining room equipment and service. I'uilli in Wilmington. Tho Efird Department Siores have been tryng to locale in this city for a considerable lime, ' ihe president said last night, but until yesterday he had been unable to make a deal for a building largo enough for his con ception of business in Wilmington. "The fact that we have located on Ihe first favorable epportuuity." sa.d Mr. Ellrd, "shows our opinion ol prospects here. Wilmington is a thriving city and its best days are ahead of it. Well, we are here to stay and are going lo share In the prosperity coming to this tine city and disirict." Soutliernels, Bom and llivcl. Associated with J. B. Ellrd are his four brothers, and all of them were raised on a farm In Anson county. All of them know what it is lo raise cotton a', six cents a pound. They are thoroughly familiar from actual ex periences as farmers and merchan disers over the two Carolina and Virginia with the buying needs of the southern public. The policy of the chain of stores is to buy strictly for cash and lo sell on the same basis, with ihe object ol making a small margin on a quick turnover. Turnover of f2li,lHH,iMKi. The stock of dry goods taken over with the building is being shipped out today to points over the south, making room for a new, fresh stock of up-to-date merchandise. The com pany does a turnover of about 20, VUU.UUU annually, although it is barely 17 years since J. B. Efird started his first store at Charlotte. He was successful from the first and his first year's turnover of 1 100,000 was but the beginning of a big de velopment which today sees the op eration of 30 stores. The firm Is a large buyer of newspaper space and a consistent display advertiser. &-,IMH In Alterations. Mr. Efird was unable to say ex actly what the remodeling would In volve, but thought that it would take all of 125.00 to make the improve ments ho had in mind. A fixed policy with the store Is to ptomoip from the ranks, and every one of the. 30 inanacers started with the company as a salesperson. Mr. Eilrd made It clear that the only coueslion his sompany bad with I New York was through J. W. Ellrd, his brother, who maintains an otihe i here to do the buying for the whole chain. This is not a Wall street financed proposition," lie said. W e are southerners, born and bred, and make our money and linmtpp our selves among our own people." The manager for the Wilmington store has not yet been selected. It is expected that about 125 persons will be employed when the store is in op eration. In the meantime the pres ident and his colleagues are hard at work during a brief stay in the city planning to get action on as quick -an opening as tho alterations to the property will penult. The store was a hive of activity last night, with ev ery one hard at work getting the Einstein stock into parking cases for shipment. Those in City.
