  • Notes 
    • Pequegnat Bros., Watchmakers and Jewellers, Berlin and Waterloo - The inhabitants of Berlin are well supplied not only with the necessaries but also the luxuries and adornments of life, and there can be no excuse for going out of town to make purchases, when the merchants here keep such excellent stocks, and sell the lowest possible prices. Among those engaged in the watchmaking and jewellery business must be mentioned Messrs. Pequegnat Bros., whose establishment is located on King St. East. This business has been established for over 11 years and since its inception has met with very favourable success, the development being very gratifying. The premises occupied are 11x50 feet, with a very nice stock of watches, clocks, chains, rings, brooches, scarf pins, and such other articles in this line as are usually to be found in a first-class jewellery establishment. The firm also make a speciality of watch repairing, of which they do a great deal. They give employment to three competent and skilled assistants, and their trade extends throughout the town and country. They also do a large jobbing trade, and give their customers the benefit of the lowest market prices, thus ensuring a continuance of their custom. Messrs. Pequegnat Bros. started with almost nothing, but by perseverance, thrift, enterprise and ability, have built up an excellent business; not only this, but they have started seven other parties in different places, who are now doing well. They have also another store of their own located in Waterloo, which is a branch of the Berlin house. Messrs. Pequegnat Bros. are natives of Switzerland, the land that produced William Tell. They are wide-awake business men, and have the esteem of the community in which they reside. They have been in this country over 13 years.1a
