April 22, 1920 BENNETT BUYS YORKTOWN STORE A.E. BENNETT, one of Tampico's successful and well known merchants has established a branch store at Yorktown. He purchased the general store there by Glen BROOKS and took possession Tuesday after invoicing. Mr. BENNETT has placed Mack PIERCE one of his experienced clerks in the store here as manager and will conduct the business along the same up-to-date lines that mark the Tampico store. Mr. BROOKS has always enjoyed good patronage and the store under the new mangement with Mr. BENNETT's known ability will continue to propser and its patrons will get the benefit of the combined buying resources of two stores. Mr. BROOKS has not decided yet what he will do.
