Must Close Saturday or Sunday

July 24, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

East Side merchants will have to keep their places of business closed one day a week. The East Side Business Men’s Association itself is seeing to it that they do so. At the quest of the Association, summonses during the past two weeks have been served on more than 250 merchants who kept their places of business open on Sunday. Those who do business on Sunday but close Saturday are not being prosecuted. The Business Men’s Association is up in arms against those who never close except at night.
