(Sixty Years Ago)
April 30, 1925
Robbers visited Lowell again last Wednesday night or early Thursday morning and this time it was Lynch Brothers store that was broken into. The robbers did their work so quietly that no body knew a thing of their visit until the next morning when Mr. Lynch came down to open the store for the day. Entrance to the store was made through the front door by using some instruments that pulled the lock out of the door. After gaining entrance to the store they unlocked the back door and in all probability backed a car or truck in to the alley behind the store and loaded the goods in. As soon as possible, Mr. Lynch and Fred Minninger, manager of this department made a check-up on the loss and found that the thieves got about $2,900 worth of clothing, $500 worth of extra pants and about $100 worth of shirts. They were rather choice of what they took as they did not take any small size suits, taking only those that were ready sellers. No trace of the robbers has been found and perhaps never will be.
This unidentified newspaper article in a "Sixty Years Ago" column, originally dated June 12, 1930, was found in a scrapbook owned by Town Historian Richard Schmal:
For nearly fifty years the Lynch family has been actively connected with the mercantile interests of Lowell. John Lunch established a store in Lowell before there was a railroad here. He was later followed by his son, E.R., who was later joined by his brother, W. Fay. After a few years, E.R. sold his interests to his brother, W. Fay, who conducted the store for several years. A number of years ago the brothers formed another partnership and until the present time the store has been conducted under the firm name of Lynch Brothers, Inc. They have conducted one of the most modern and up-to-date stores in this section. They have decided to retire from business and are placing their entire stock on the market at prices that will be economy for all to purchase their present and future needs. Their entire stock has been marked down to unheard of low prices, and as a result, they are having good crowds of shoppers at the store everyday. While the stock has now been on sale for several days, the lines are all complete and prospective buyers will find it to their advantage to call and see the stock and once you are there, you will find the prices so attractive you will want to make purchases for your future needs.
