ACHTENHAGEN & BORCHARDT OPENED at 201 E Main in 1894

 

R. Achtenhagen's opening at his place of business in Cole’s block last Monday was a grand success in every respect.  The place was crowded with anxious buyers from morning until late in the evening, and all admired the elegant stock and especially the low prices at which it was offered for sale.  The fine display in the show window was very attractive, and was admired by everyone who saw it.  Mr. Achtenhagen is certainly a subject for congratulations on the success of his opening, and a beginning so successful is a fine indication of a good business career to follow.
