They employed many people on the farm, in the store, and on the road. Their sons also had to work after school and on Saturdays. Brother George, also, later on opened his own store a few blocks away.
During the depression years, they kept many people “on the books" causing indebtedness for themselves.
More detail of their international business travels in my next blog.
