May 8, 1947 – Springhill Record

Work will be­gin im­me­di­ately on the ex­ten­sion to the build­ing of the Canadian Bank of Com­merce, Mr. S.D. Reid, Man­ager of the lo­cal branch, an­nounced this week. The con­tract for this work has been placed with Rhodes, Cur­rey and Co. of Amherst.

The new ad­di­tion will be the width of the build­ing and will ex­tend back 20 feet. The new vault will add a fur­ther ex­ten­sion of 18 feet in width and 9 feet depth. The con­struc­tion will be brick to match the present build­ing.

The new ad­di­tion will give the bank much ad­di­tional work­ing space and do much to lessen the present con­ges­tion.

About fifty chil­dren paraded up and down Main Street Tues­day evening chant­ing “We want 5c choco­late bars.” They car­ried home-made signs and made plenty of noise but had the street to them­selves but were or­derly.

On Satur­day Her­rett’s Gro­cery hung out a sign “Choco­late Bars 7c to­day!” This was the first break in the price of choco­late bars as far as we know.
