The complete story ol the opening offerings is published in an advertisement in The Star today. Montgomery Ward & Co. entered the Hope field the first of August, 1929, taking the four-stqry building at 112 East Second street, during an expansion program which carried the United States' oldest mail-order house into the retail department store business with 450 units. Commenting on the closing, Mr. Fincher said: "The closing of the Hope Montgomery Ward store has no relation to the present business conditions throughout the country, but is simply part of a readjustment program that necessarily must follow an experience such as Ward's underwent in 1928 and 1929. Montgomery Ward & Go's, local store has received a substantial volume of business ever since it opened over :wo years ago. "However, it is the feeling of the officials of the company that the big Ward catalogue adeo.uately serves this community and the surrounding trade territory. Montgomery Ward's have been doing an immense volume of mail order business in this territory for over GO years. The larger assortments shown in the catalogue (over 40,000 items) give the customer a wider selection than the stock carried in the local store—it was only possible to carry about 3,000 items in the local store." Mr. Fincher stated that Montgomery Ward £ Go's, confidence in this community had not been shaken in any way and that Hope offered many advantages from the retailer's standpoint.
