TRADING POST – Boy Scout tradingĀ  post, specializing in scout clothing and equipment, is part of the newly renovated Jansen’s store at 390 Broadway. That’s salesman Burton Polhamus is behind the counter.

The newly expanded E. W. Jansen Inc. men’s clothing store is open for business at 390 Broadway in Newburgh.

About 1,000 square feet has been added to the store’s floor space, according to Maynard Davidson, company president. The expansion, in addition to providing more room for the firm’s enlarged line of men’s clothing and accessories, provides space for new sportswear department and a Boy Scout trading post.

The Jansen company has been at 388 Broadway since 1955. Its new quarters put its entrance one door away from the old address.

The clothing outfit began in 1920 as “The Four”, with a store on Water Street. Mr. Davidson, an employee since 1925, became president at the time of the Broadway move in 1955.

Salesmen are John Kerwick, Burton Polhamus, Bertram Stocks and Frank Gardner.
