Letter to the Editor: Elbert’s

Editor’s note: While some rush to do business at the “box stores” and the “Wal-Marts” of this world, others pause to marvel at the values and traditions still evident in our small towns. The following note was recently mailed to Elbert’s Department Store, one of the oldest retail stores in Northwest Missouri, now in its 81st year at Gallatin.

Dear Folks,

We were in your store this past October

    I agree with the comments about Elberts department store. I live in Independence and have been in the Kansas City metro for 32 years and still come home to my home town
    a few times a year and find Elberts a rare find in a small town store, I was just thinking recently what class Elberts gives to Gallatin or to any small town. Freinds here have asked me where I have gotten some merchandise to find they would have to go 70 miles to get the same
    I have also sent friends from here to have a tour by
    Mr. Daryl Wilkerson of the squirrel cage jail and have been
    complientary of the tour and Gallatin
