Mead's Stationary store is now installed in its new quarters at 249 and 251 Greenwich avenue near East Elm street, which can safely be said to be as fine and commodious quarters as any store in town has. It has more than three thousand square feet of floor space and is one of the best lighted business places anywhere hereabouts.

The display windows are of oak finish and the most artistic the community has ever seen here. Close to the windows in either side of the store are large mirrow-backed cabinets, one to be used for the display of kodaks, and one for writing papers and materials.

Running lengthwise of the store are eight find large "salesman" showcases. Large bookcases is capable of holding two thousand volumes have been installed. These bookcases like all other woodwork in the store are a super gray oak, the new finish which is becoming popular.

At the rear of the store is a large sound–proof room which will be used as a Victor Talking Machine salesroom. Just outside is a series of cabinets in which are stored the four thousand or more Victor records which the store carries.

There are many other new, interesting and pleasing things about the store and one will find it worthwhile to visit and inspect them.
