OPENING OF

W H & J FERENS' NEW DRAPERY PREMISES

W H & J FERENS

HAVE MUCH PLEASURE IN ANNOUNCING THAT THEIR

NEW PREMISES ARE ENTIRELY FINISHED

They take this opportunity of thanking their numerous Friends for the very liberal Support accorded them in their Old Shop, which was found of late years wholly inadequate for properly conducting their increasing Trade, and, with a view to extending their Accommodation, they purchased the greater portion of the "City Tavern", which, together with their old Premises, has been entirely re-built and re-modelled.

They would briefly observe that the whole of their Business is now conducted on ONE FLOOR. A separate Shop, with FRONT ACCESS, has been set apart for the WOOLLEN TRADE, and a GENTLEMAN'S DEPARTMENT, and also for TAILORING.

In the GENERAL SHOP each Department has been properly arranged and classified, affording every facility for the despatch of Business.

A NEW SHAWL AND MANTLE ROOM has been fitted up, devoted entirely to that class of Goods.

A NEW MILLINERY ROOM has been constructed, separated from the rest of the Premises.

Indeed every care has been taken to render their Establishment as perfect in its arrangement for Business as possible. The comfort of their Customers has no less been their study - A New System of Warming and Ventilation has been adopted; and they venture to say that their NEW PREMISES will be found the most Comfortable, the best arranged, and best lighted in the North of England.

They have much pleasure in announcing that, from the Extensive and already increased Business, they have been enabled materially to reduce their scale of profits.

W H & J FERENS beg to say that their arrangements for the Present Season are on an Unusually Large Scale; every Department is Fully Assorted with the GREATEST NOVELTIES.

AN EARLY CALL IS RESPECTFULLY SOLICITED

For the information of Strangers, W H & J FERENS beg to observe that their Drapery Establishment is the New Shop facing the Entrance to the New Markets.

Market Place, Nov 20, 1865
