Albert Bojens entered the hardware business in September, 1904, at 326??? Walnut street, on a very small scale but the determination to succeed more than balanced the smallness of his stock. On February 16th, 1906, he purchased the business of G.B. Cadwell & Son at his present location on Chestnut street. He closed his Walnut street store and transferred his goods to his new location. Mr. Bojens, by his industry and strict attention to business, has built up a large and lucrative trade. The location now being remodeled for his occupancy is a tribute to the manner in which he has conducted his store. Anyone who is capable of achieving a success of this character must necessarily have built it on a thorough knowledge of this line to the minutest detail.

Courtesy and promptitude are the chief characteristics of the help Mr. Bojens has chosen to aid him in building his business up to the point now attained and which he believes will go forward to greater strides. He always does his part with extra good measure for anything that pertains to the betterment of this community.

Mr. Bojens is a member of the Commercial Club, Elks, and Odd Fellows and is generally known as a live wire.
