The Messicks Chester's #1 "Haberdashers"


George and Joseph Messick's were Chester's #1  "Haberdashers" from 1887 thru the 1920's. Above is an usual advertising postcard from them c.1915

Chester's Haberdashers

Begininng in 1887, the Messsicks store at 530 Market St. and later a second store on West Third St. was the place for Chester men to go for their clothes. A "Haberdasher" was a men's store, where the name originally came from I do not know. The above appeal to women I thought was different and I wanted to add it for my readers.
