"Another of Wooster's attractive and prosperous mercantile establishments is the City Book Store, situated first door east of the Citizens National Bank, The, in the heart of Wooster's shopping district. In connection with books, stationery, office supplies, kodaks and photo supplies, pictures and picture framing, this store conducts a soda fountain in the rear, exclusive from the rest which enjoys a well deserved and growing patronage.
