The Evening Times (Salisbury)Footnote regarding The Hargis Department Store in Pocomoke City: Mr. Veasey retired from the business in 1928 and the "Veasey Building" at the northeast corner of Market Street and Clarke Avenue was leased to J.C. Penny (Market Street entrance) and Montgomery Ward (Clarke Avenue entrance). Miss Alice Young was advertising manager and interior designer for the Hargis store. When the store closed she went on to a long career with Pocomoke's Worcester Democrat newspaper.
