G. A.  Grassow  &  Bro.

          Came to the city of Shelbyville on the 5th day of June, 1878.  They are formerly of Indianapolis, where they have been actively engaged in business ever since they were old enough to do anything.  This firm has only been in our city about eight months, but in that time they have succeeded in building up quite a large trade, which is rapidly on the increase.  Their stock consists of the best of groceries, of all kinds.  They make a specialty of teas, coffees, sugars; spices, etc., in which line they have one of the largest stocks ever brought to this city.  They return their thanks to the citizens who have so freely patronized them in the past and respectfully ask a continuance of their favors in the future.  To those who have never visited their store, they extend a special invitation to all if only to see how nicely they have things arranged, assuring them at all times, of courteous and gentlemanly treatment.  Their place of business is No. 21, Phoenix block, northwest side of the Public Square.
