News: Greenwood – Farmer's Store Changes Hands (1974)
----Source: Tribune/Record/Gleaner (Loyal, Wis.) 15 Aug 1974
Don Decker, owner and operator of Decker Plee-zing Foods on Greenwood's (Clark Co., Wis.) North Main Street, announced last week he had purchased the Farmer Store from The Farmer Store Company of Eau Claire.
Farmer Store Company has operated a store I Greenwood for many years, and has been the only general merchandising store in this city. They also had a grocery department.
Mr. Decker plans to operate his north side store, as well as his new store on the south side.
The new store will be known as Decker's Farm and City Service Center. This ssote will give more room for Don to operate a larger super market and he will also have room in the building for two or three persons to go into business for themselves in lines such as Dry Goods, Children's Clothing, etc.
Don Decker said, with the large store and better parking facilities, he feels he can offer the people of the Greenwood and Willard areas a bigger selection of groceries, as well as very good parking.
Plans at this time include to continue operating the north store.
From August 19 through September 19, a large stock reduction and remodeling will be in progress.
Mr. Decker purchased the north side store in 1954 from his folks, who operated it as The Greenwood Locker Plant. They were in business for five years before selling it to Don, so the Decker Family has operated the business for 25 years.
