  • Notes 
    • M. Grebenstein, Fashionable Tailor and Clothier, King Street - Among the popular and prominent tailors of Berlin is Mr. M. Grebenstein, who conducts business on King Street, opposite the Germania Block. He is a practical cutter, and has achieved well deserved popularity as one of the leaders of gentlemen's fashions in town. The premises occupied are 23x80 feet in dimensions, and are well stocked with a large and valuable assortment of English, Scotch and French woollens for suitings; broadcloth, etc., which he cuts and makes to order in the most fashionable styles at moderate prices. Mr. Grebenstein controls a large trade among the merchants and citizens, by whom he is endorsed and recommended for his taste and skill in making perfect fitting, stylish clothing, etc. Mr. Grebenstein started in business in 1869, the firm being Gotleib & Grebenstein, which was continued for six years and dissolved, when he is commenced business for himself, in which he has proved eminently successful, but it has been by, as he himself expresses it, "hard, steady work and by sticking to it; business success depends a great deal upon the man himself." In this Mr. Grebenstein has uttered a truism that is not alone applicable to his own case, but to business in general. It is those who "stick to it" and "work hard and steady" that succeed in life's great race. Mr. Grebenstein gives employment to ten skilled and competent hands. He is a native of Germany, and ha served in the Council here for two years, and is well and favorably known to the whole community, and popular with all who patronize him.1a
