There is probably no branch of the mercantile trade in any city that is so essential to the complete accommodation of the public as a first-class grocery store. Mr. S.E. Mills, whose well stocked grocery store is located at No. 209, south side of Main street. Mr. Mills is a first-class grocer in all that the term implies. He keeps nothing but the freshest and purest goods and sells the same at a very small margin of profit. No grocery firm in North Manchester handles a higher grade of goods, and as they are purchased direct from manufacturers and importers the prices at which they are offered to the local public are very attractive to that class of buyers who want the most and best for their money. Mr. Mills is a popular and responsible gentleman and deserves the success he has won.
