Hudson in 1905: Part 55

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

S. N. DECKER--Wholesale Produce Commission Merchant. No. 622 Warren street. Telephone Call H. R. 71-F; Columbia 202. It is a matter of no small consideration when it can be said with all assurance that the commission house of Mr. S. N. Decker is one of the most important in this section of the State. In his special line of goods this gentleman handles only the freshest to be had in the city, and this is saying a great deal when all the goods that he keeps are perishable. This market has been established for about ten years, and each year has seen a marked increase in the amount of business transacted. A fine line of berries, fruits, etc., with oysters in season, is carried. All the smaller merchants of the city are supplied by Mr. Decker, and through his marked ability to buy in large quantities and at the lowest market quotations, they are given the advantage of very reasonable prices. The trade of the house necessitates the employment of three men, besides the use of two delivery teams. Mr. Decker has a large following and patronage in the surrounding towns.
