Hudson in 1905: Part 35

The following is an excerpt from the booklet Illustrated Hudson, N.Y., published in 1905.

JACQUINS' 5 AND 10 CENT STORE--No. 553 Warren street. The general line of goods carried in this establishment comprises everything that is needed in the way of small cooking utensils, stationery, bric-a-brac, toilet articles, and many other household necessities too numerous to mention. Everything is sold within the prices as given above, and in this respect the goods sold here are cheaper than can be obtained anywhere else. A specialty is made of this line of merchandise and it is purchased in such large quantities that it can be sold with only the smallest margin of profit. The business has been established here for twenty-one years, and has recently moved in its present location, having formerly been located on the opposite side of the street. The general business done gives employment to a force of six people, and these are constantly engaged in waiting on the ever-present trade.
