Peckosh Bros.
Clothing Store
PECKOSH BROS. Clothing Store, the display ad of which appears on this page, is located on the south side of Broadway in a good one story brick building, owned by the firm. Their career as clothing merchants in this city dates back to September 8th, 1910, when they purchased the clothing and gents’ furnishing stock of V. E. Sobotka. At that time the building, in which the store was located, was owned by Frank Kenney. A deal was made at the same date that the stock was purchased whereby they bought the building also.
Frank Peckosh, one mem-ber of the firm, who has the actual charge of the business, was employed with the G. W. Simpson Creamery Co., before interesting himself in the clothing business. Previous to this time he was employed as cashier with the C. M. & St. Paul R.R. Co., at Perry, Iowa. He saw the opportunities for the future of a well conducted gents furnishing store in this city and made the investment, as stated above, in connection with his brother, John, who is employed with the C. M. & St. Paul R.R. Co., at this place, a position which he has held continuously for a number of years.
Both members of this firm have been residents of this city during their entire life, being born and raised at this place. During the years that they have operated the business they have enjoyed an exceptionally good patronage. Their ability to keep their stocks clean and up-to-date has made for themselves a reputation which is very gratifying indeed. Besides taking orders for made-to-measure clothes, they carry a good line of ready made clothes, for which they have a good demand. It is impossible to enumerate the different articles carried continuously in stock, but men who wish to provide themselves with wearing apparel of the better quality can do no better than to give Peckosh Bros. an opportunity to supply your needs.

As a suggestion for your Christmas gift problems it would save you a great deal of trouble and worry if you would call at their store and see some of the appropriate articles for his Christmas gift. A few of the suggestions are as follows: Neckware, Handkerchiefs, Shirts, Hosiery, and many other useful articles.
In connection with the members of the above firm the part that Frank Peckosh has taken in the war activities is deserving of special mention. At the time that the Govern-ment announced there would be a drive for the sale of War Savings Stamps, it was necessary to select from the immediate community a man fully responsible and capable of
taking charge of this drive. At a meeting at the Commercial Club rooms of the business men, Frank Peckosh was selected to act as local chairman. He accepted the office, knowing that it would require a great deal of work and considerable time. The fact that Oxford Township quickly subscribed her quota with a good margin to spare is convincing evidence that he did his work well.
This firm, which is deserving of the patronage of the entire community, invites you to visit the store before making your Christmas purchases. Their stock is replete with men’s furnishings which will please you. Clothing gifts are very acceptable.
