Stewart Shoe Company of West Duluth

One hundred years ago the Stewart Shoe Company was on its way out and American Bakery Company was on its way in at 324 N. Central Ave. in West Duluth. The building there was constructed in 1894 and today is occupied by Wussow’s Concert Cafe, which opened under the name Beaner’s Central in 1999.

The ad above is from the Sept. 6, 1920 Duluth Herald newspaper.

American Bakery Company held a grand opening for its “store no. 4” on Oct. 26-28, featuring “bread, rolls, cakes, pastries” for “Free! Free! Free!” There were also “a half-dozen fancy cookies” given away with every 25-cent purchase.
