In 1916, the Pugh Stores Company was one of the largest and most comprehensive merchandise establishment in Southern Illinois. It occupied the mammoth five-story building on Upper Market Street and handles everything for mankind according to the The Massac Journal-Republican dated August, 10, 1916. The object of the Pugh Stores Company-a chain of stores in eleven central states-is to bring the customer in close touch with the producer and manufacturer, at one small profit between the two.
