-BUSINESS CHANGE.
A change has occurred in the business of Grayling which will be a surprise to many.
J. Maurice FINN has sold his stock of Dry Goods, Clothing, Boots, Shoes, Groceries and Lumbermen's Supplies to L. JENSON and MANTZ Bro's. under the firm name of L. Jenson & Co., with a five years lease of his buildings.
Mr. FINN has been here for over ten years and has built up a large and lucrative trade, making hosts of friends who will regret his retirement especially if as rumor has it, he removes from this place to the Upper Peninsula to care for the interests of the Grayling Gold and Silver Mining Co., which are said to be assuming vast proportions.
His successors are gentlemen who are well known here having been successfully engaged in lumbering for several years, which business they will continue, though we believe Mr. JENSON will have personal charge of the mercantile transactions. If the change was to be made we know of no one whom we would more cordially welcome, and we certainly wish all the parties unlimited success. (22 Mar 1889)
