Nebraska Clothing- Co. Leases
13,500 Feet of Floor Space
' Adjoining Present
For the fifth time in five years the
Nebraska Clothing company has ex-
panded. Now it has taken over the
ground lease to the lot on .which
stands the two-story and basement
building formerly occupied by a ia
loon and billiard hall, operated by
Lentz & Williams. J he building is
34x132 feet and will add 13,500 square
feet of floor space to the sales rooms
of the Nebraska Clothing company.
When the new addition, i occupied
by the Nebraska Clothing company, it
will have one of the largest, if not
the largest, exclusive retail clothing
houses west ot Chicago.
The Nebraska Clothing company
will occupy the new addition as soon
as remodeling cart be completed,
which will be inside of 60 davs. The
remodeling will cost approximately
$-'U,uuu and the fixtures, which will be
of the latest design, $15,000.
This move will add several thous
and square feet to the" department that
handles men s, boys and young men s
clothing and will make it the largest
department of its kind in tht country.
In the four-story building at the
corner of tarnam and Fifteenth
streets, the entire third floor will be
given over to women's apparel, thus
doubling the size of this department.
The millinery department will be
moved to the main floor of the annex,
greatly increasing the size of the
John A. Swanson, president of the
Nebraska Clothing company, in
speaking of the acquiring of the lease
on the additional floor space says:
"The growth of the Nebraska has
made its present building too small
and we have contemplated adding
more stories, that we might properly
house our greatly enlarged stock and
provide adequate room for our rapid
ly growing business. This opportunity
to acquire more floor space to the east
and expand our present lower floor
space will not only result in the more
convenient handling of merchandise,
but also insure more perfect service
for our patrons."
The sale of the Lentz & Williams
building and the transfer on the
ground lease on which it stands was
made through H. A. Wolfe & Co., re
altors, and is'vne of the important
real estate transactions of the year.
