A Handsome Store

The writer took a look through the new store of Denney & Olson, at Abbotsford, Wisconsin last week, and must confess, that for the size, there is not a more handsome or convenient store on the line. The main store is 30x50 feet with a good cellar the same size, and a warehouse on the north side 18x50 feet, on a good stone foundation, and the whole sheeted and roofed with steel. In the store the ceiling is 20 feet high. There is the usual shelving on both sides and above that is an 8 foot balcony, hung from the collar beams by strong iron rods, and with railing around the front edge. On this balcony is the clothing and gents’ furnishing departments, on one side, and the crockery and notion department on the other. In the rear of the store is a neat office back of which is the stairway leading to the balcony. The furnishings of the store are all finished in cherry stain and the counter tops are of ash, all making a very pretty effect. It is a handsome store and is well deserved by the owners. Success to them say we.
