Posted In:Instructional

Gradson Bill Wiechmann Kessel, Jr., will present the story of traveling salesman William Carl Wiechmann, who was selling merchandise to retailers until her wife Emma suggested they open their own stores. In 1900 the Wiechmanns rented at 25 ft. storefront building on Genessee that remained open until 1992. During this time the store was managed by family members. The company expanded into three stores in the 1970s located in Saginaw's Fashion Sq. Mall, Bay City's Hampton Mall, and Owosso. Wiechmann's was known for offering quality merchandise, full service to its customers, and taking an active part in the community. Held at SASA, 1903 N. Niagara, Saginaw. Starts at 7 PM.
