Arthur and Harry Garbisch Buy Out Val Fleckenstein Store and Property


The hardware business that has for the past sixteen years been run by Val Fleckenstein was bought last week Friday by Arthur and Harry Garbisch together with the buildings.

Inventory is being taken this week and as soon as completed the new owners will take possession which will probably be tonight.

The new firm needs no introduction to the citizens of this vicinity. In the Garbisch brothers you will find a pair as hard to draw to as could be found were you to scratch the country over. Both are hustlers genial, accommodating, and we predict that they will soon be heading toward the king row at an alarming pace.

The boys have also secured the services of Theo. Watermolen, who for the past two years has been employed in the hardware store of L. W. Peterson.

Mr. Fleckenstein is at present undecided as to future plans but expects to make Dorchester his home for some time to come.

The new firm will be known from now on as The Dorchester Hardware Co.
