My granddaddy Cromer was a very humble man with a wonderful sense of humor. He was a son of a Lutheran minister and believed in treating all his customers by the Golden Rule. His desk where he ran the business at 1235 Assembly St. was a pull out board next to the retail counter. Around this he kept his files, a rolodex with names and numbers and there he counted out the money from each day’s sales to make his bank deposits. He never had a formal office but ran a very successful business from where he could see all his customers come in the front door.
