Today marks another mile­ stone In the life of none other \^than Luke Brass, genial owner and proprietor of the newest grocery outlet of this area. At 10:00 a. m. this morning the ribbon was cut by Mrs, Brass and Frank Osborne to officially open the new L. R. Brass, Inc Super Duper store located at 590 Main Street in Arcade. Congratulations are in order to the Brass family on this occasion. The building, which was built by Mr and Mrs. Brass jointly, is of block construction, 82\ x 130,' with the most modern of fixtures and equipment avail­ able for the shopping public. A huge \Nellie\ sign, traditional Identification mark , of Super - Duper stores has been erected in front of the building. The corp­ oration officers who will operate the business include Luke, Mildred Bernard, Betty and Bob Brass. Some of the highlights of the 2v $P e w store include 6,800 square feet of Shopping area, 57 feet of self service mea'ts, 32 feet of produce cases, 14 feet of ice cream cab­ inets, automatic \Super-Fast\ checkouts, chicken Bar-B-Cue rotisserie, extra wide aisles 24 feet of dairy cases, 24 feet of frozen food cases, automatic \seeing eye\ doors, automatic pie oven, over 5.500 items on the shelves and, last but not least by any means, off the street parking for 100 or more cars. Along with the open­ ing many prizes-and free gifts are being given away Many town officials were on - hand for the impressive cere­ monies. Those on hand included Sup. Knight and Mayor Bailey of Arcade; Sup. Ferry of Bliss; Sup. Joyce of Holland; Sup. Leonard of Freedom; Sup. Hamm of Java, Sup. Carlsen of Sardinia, Sup. Braymiller of Yorkshire; Mayor Gretzler of Delevan Many Flick­ inger Co. executives were also on hand Elsewhere on this front page is a picture of the new store taken during the construction and a pic­ ture of the first business venture for Luke and his partner. Com­ ing to Arcade in February of 1920, Luke started in business with Guy Yule. In August, 1922, he bought out his partner and had operated as an individual owner until this past summer when the corporation was formed Between these years he operated a meat market in the store now occupied by the Mont­ gomery Electric Store, purchased the Lincoln Hutto Grocery in March of 1941, and moved to the old site in June of 1944. From June, 1955, until February 4, 1956 as a R & W Super Market. In December of 1844, Mr. Brass introduced to the area the first frozen food locker in / Arcade. During his stay in the old site he chalked many other firsts, in­ cluding the fipit self service gro­ cery, the first 100% self service meat department and the first self service produce department. The new Super Duper will be staffed by Darrel Domes, Maurice Mummery, Faxon Dean, Barbara Kay, Sharon Marble. Rose Marie Phillippi, Florence Fowler, Doro­ thy Beyers, Phillip Ely as well as Luke, Bernard, Bob and Betty Brass. Uptown Main Street of Ar­ cade will miss the familiar Brass R & W Supermarket but we are sure that the West End Merchants welcome the new Super Duper Market to its fast growing section Moves of this nature are part of a nation-wide trend to move out to the open spaces which provide merchants room for parking and expansion. We wish to direct your atten­ tion to pages 4, 5 and 8 of section two of this issue. On 4 and 5 is the first color advertising in the local paper attempted by this or­ ganization Through the coopera­ tion of L. R. Brass Inc., S. M. Flickinger advertising department and the Tri-County Weekly Pub­ lications Inc this move was made possible Each of us are under­ standably proud of these pages. On page 8 is found an advertise­ ment sponsored by the supplier and contractors of the building. To the Brass family, the work­ ers who worked with them, and to all others who have helped make this tremendous undertak­ ing possible we say \Congratular tions.\ We're glad that you had f faith in our area. As Frank Dill of. Radio Station WGR would say, \It's Nice To Know So Many Nice People.\ Another first for Arcade will become a reality when on to­ morrow morning the Arcade Laundromat will open its doors for the first time. This is located in the Persons building formerly occupied by the Service Store. Claris Persons will operate the newest addition to the business establishments in Arcade.
