“Changes to other merchant styles were also made during the decade. Individual local stores began to give way to larger chains. In spring 1929 Baruch Nettles, a Camden clothier for more than twenty years, sold out to J. C. Penney. In the fell L. Schenk and Company closed and rented its store to J. J. Newberry.” (Information courtesy of A History of Kershaw County, S.C. by Joan A. Inabinet and L. Glenn Inabinet, 2001 – The Un. of S.C. Press)
