On or about April 6, 1901 A.M. Lerberg opened the store on the main street of the small, but growing, town of Ellendale.
"I will open up a brand new stock of Dry Goods, Groceries, Shoes, Furnishing Goods, Hats, Caps, Crockery, Etc. And I earnestly invite your inspection. I will not propose to give you a dollar's worth of goods for 50 cents, but I will give you a dollar's worth for 100 cents. I am here to stay and intend to do what is right. Give us a call. We will be glad to show our goods wheather you buy or not"
Yours for Honest Dealing,
