M. M. Creath


There is one grocery store at least in London worthy of special mention. This is the establishment of M. M. Creath. This store was opened ten years ago, but for five years prior Mr. Creath had been employed in a similar business so that he had a large experience before embarking for himself. The business was first started as Creath & Creath, Mr. Creath's father being the senior member. His death in 1903, dissolved the firm, and M. M. Creath has conducted the business ever since with great success, increasing trade and popularity. His stock is always fresh, pure and complete. Staple and fancy groceries, smoked meats, vegetables, oysters and fruits in season may be found here. He does a large country business and pays the highest prices for produce. The White Star Coffee and William Tell Flour are among some leaders in which his trade is very large.

Mr. Creath is enterprising in his business, as well as quick to advance the interests of London.
