Bring Food Shop
Lou Lewis and Floyd Coker have
brought their food shop know-how
to the Southwestern section with
the opening this week of their
Lewis and Coker Supermarket No.
2 at 2266 West Holcombe (Bell-
aire) Boulevard in the Braeswood
From the magic eye doors at
the impressive entrance to the
storage space, unseen by the pub-
lic, in the rear of the store, the
supermarket brings the most mod-
ern innovations in food merchan-
dising to residents of the section.
Managed by R. L. Bassett, the
summer and winter air-conditioned
shop brings to the local public a
complete stock of food and drug
items, together with the pledge to
bring in unusual products to meet
the demands of Southwestern shop-
This policy of a complete line
of quality foods at low prices is
carried out in a large drug and
cosmetic department, a bakery de-
partment which takes orders for
special cakes and a fancy foods
section which includes Kosher
products, in addition to the meat
department (managed by Ralph
Sanders, who invites his many
friends in the section to inspect
his well-stocked counters) and a
produce department for which
fresh stock is purchased daily.
Another feature of the store is
a courtesy counter where custom-
ers may cash checks and pay util-
“Nothing has been left undone
in making this one of the finest
supermarkets in the country,” Mr.
Lewis said. “We have brought in
easy-roll shopping baskets, we
have installed Music by Muzak
and we have put in a large num-
ber of refrigerated cases to insure
the freshness of perishables. In
short, we have included every mod-
ern facility to make this the best
possible food store.”
