Mr. A. C. Willis's. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 19 October 1895

Mr. k. C. Willis's. Mr. A. C. 'Willis, who presides at the well-known tailoring and mercery estab lishment, three or four doors north of the Free Press publishing office, has also got in a first-class stock for the ?warm season of the year. But, then, his stock is always first-class. It very much reflects the stamp of the man whose impress is on the whole business. A sterling type of townsman is the ex School of Arts president, kindly, staid, and juat. But his Spring goods are — or ought to be — under consideration - not the man. They are impossible of adverse criticism — good, attractive, and of splendid wearing value. No one needs to be told how charmingly the mercery goods are placed to advantage when they can be studied with comfort and pleasure, by the passers-by in Church-street ; but everyone may be warned in his own interest to take note that the model business, like The Brook, is still a-going on. And whilst we are dealing with tailors and mercers, it would ill become us to...
