A Greater Omaha Will Be Inaugurated
THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE: MAY 5. 1912.
Hay the Seventh
7N the first place' the Commission Form of Government will take effect
by the election of 5 SEVEN representative men to carryLon the busi
ness of municipal administration. V ' . "4r;..,C.-;C.a:
But of equal significance is th fact that one of the' oldest firms i of the
pity.ori that date .will inaugurate their new and splendid placef of Business
and thereby,' inra practical- way, demonstrate the faith in ; a greater Omahar;
which good and patriotic Citizens have ever nourished.
Next Tuesday at 2 o clock , the magnificent new store of Fred Brode
gaard Jewelry Co., at 16th and Douglas Streets, will be thrown open for in
spection by the people of Omaha, and handsome souvenirs will be presented
to every visitor. , .f
In order to surround this great occasion with lucky omens, the beau-r
tiful salesrooms, resplendent in Mahogany, Art Designs and Mirrors, will be -placed
at the disposal of a wedding party just before the three entrance! to
the' great store are opened. : ' .
V JhuSi on the same day, Omaha will enter upon a new trend toward
Greatness, Happiness and Prosperity; an old established firm in the city, will ,
start upon the still larger and firmer plan, which growth has made necessary
and to, top it all, a certain happy young couple will start a voyage on the
sea of matrimony, surrounded by all signs of integrity and prosperity attend
ed by the good wishes and generous gifts of leading trades people in the city.',;
May Seventh Is Certainly a Lucky Day
i " -
"" Our endeavor in the new surroundings shall be solely .
to give 'complete satisfaction to the thousands of friends
and customers that have learned to know us through faith
ful dealings' during many years. We will be equipped beti
ter than ever to cater to these friends, because we will have
room to show an immense and pleasing stock. At times we
have been badly crowded in the old store, and there was not
Sufficient space for new goods ever arriving.
, But of even greater importance is the fact that we now
are able to enter into buying competition with the biggest
stores in New York and Chicago. The watch factories of the
United States and the manufacturing goldsmiths of the
world have found out, through us, that Omaha is decidedly
ion the map, and, whether quality, splendor or price is in
' volved, no citizen of Omaha will, in the future, be justified
in trading away from home. It is far more likely that vis- :
itors from other western cities will envy Omaha a jewelry
store like ours. , , '
If you will watch our store during the next few month
it will become evident that we are not idly boasting or mak
ing false clni-im. We ore going to show" such bargain op
portunilics as have never before been introduced in Omaha,
and wo bIihU certainly maintain that high standard of qual
ity, guaranty and fairness upon which our succesi is based.'
But as far as Tuesday, May Seventh,1 is concerned, we
just want everybody to f 'have a look." Come in during the
afternoon and receive a nice and valuable souvenir, while
you see what kind of a store your city is able to produce.
27 Years in Omaha
We started in business 27 years ago on South 10th
Street. The two brothers, Fred and Alfred Brodegaard,'
have through, the years built up a stabje reputation for
honesty, and practical ; knowledge, based upon ttie
honored traditions handed down in a family' of several
generations of watchmakers and goldsmiths in the old
In 1904' we saw the signs of a Growing Metropolis
here in Omaha, and organized the Company, which
has .ever since been , doing a good business under "the
Sign of the Crown" on South 16th Street. .
The clean and efficient business methods, which laid the foundation of our suc
- cese, were maintained with scrupulous care, and, as a result, you find us in 1912 with
the most beautiful and well-stocked Jewelry Store of the West, added to which we
make claims for the biggest and best concentrated buying power. The factories of
the world are actually waiting on us now they are listening when we speak.
We feel that our progress is going to help Omaha in the same degree Aat Omaha
has made our success possible. And that is the reason we want every loyal citizen
to go through our new store Tuesday and notice what we have accomplished. ,
