Joseph Geik. One of the most popular grocery houses in North Manchester, and one which has always drawn the patronage of "first class trade," is that of Mr. Joseph Geik, on east Main street. Mr. Geik has been a leading grocer of North Manchester for many years. Always obliging and reliable, always having the right thing at the right time, Mr. Geik has kept up with the procession and is now at the head of a flourishing and substantial house. His stock is large and complete, and when it comes to giving the most goods for the least money Mr. Geik stands in fear of no competition.
