New York Bargain Store by Karen Cuccinello
I found an ad in a January 12, 1888 Hobart Independent- The New York Bargain Store will open in the Loewenstein store,
West of the Commercial Hotel, Hobart, NY on January 12th, 1888. Big Bargains in Tinware, Hardware, Glassware, Jewelry, Notions, Dry Goods, Silverware, etc. etc. The best 25 cents bustle on earth. come early and secure bargains. everything 25 cents. J.L. Meeker, Manager- I believe this is James L. Meeker who had a store here for a couple of years. James and his wife Catherine, a milliner, mostly lived in Delhi.
