Balch & Heath Co. (Opening - 6 February 1904)
The opening day of the Balch & Heath Co. store Saturday last was made the occasion by the public to visit and inspect the store, congratulate the enterprising proprietors, accept a cigar or candy as preferred and admire everything. The cash carrying system installed is one of the best. A cashier’s station has been erected between the dry goods and grocery departments, high enough to admit of a neat toilet for ladies and cloak room beneath. This is on the south side. In front the dry goods occupy the south side and the shoe department the north side, while along the center is a row of plate glass show cases. On Saturday the force of clerks was kept busy waiting on customers, and the delivery sleighs made the store at each call around. Three new windows above the shelving are to be put in the south wall as soon as the weather permits.
