Seaman Opens New Grocery
One of the first, if not the first, of Lindsay’s young returned men, who has gone further than to contemplate setting up in business is Colin Deck. Deck, who cannot yet, according to the Navy, be called Mister (he has not received his discharge from the Service), opened a grocery store, Nov. 15, in the premises formerly occupied by H. Staples, 86 King St.
I served two years with the Supply Branch of the R.C.N.V.R., one of which was spent at sea, aboard the frigate H.M.C.S. Runnymede, Colin Deck disclosed this morning adding,
This experience will greatly assist me in the management of a grocery business.

He recently submitted a request to the Town Council, that, instead of paying a transient trader’s license of $100 to start a grocery business, he pay a year’s taxes in advance. Since he is a returned man Council decided not to collect the fee for a trader’s license and to issue him a business license next year for which he will be charged in the usual way.
