The property in High-street now occupied by Messrs. Hunter's Tea Stores has been acquired, we understand, by Mr. A. Gramshaw, furniture dealer, opposite, with a view to the extension of his business. Mr. Gramshaw has used the rooms over the shop for some time as a show place, and intends to use the shop below (in addition to his present shop) as soon as it become available.

Progress - Few local businesses have made greater strides in Rushden during the last quarter-of-a-century than that of Mr A Gramshaw, household furnisher, who 25 years ago started in small premises on the west side High-street and subsequently took spacious premises (No. 40 High-street) adjoining Succoth Chapel. Later he secured good showrooms in Queen-street, and now he has secured for showroom purposes the large shop recently occupied by Messrs Hunter, the Teamen.
With the spacious new premises immediately opposite his present shop, he will be in a position to greatly increase his output and his showroom premises will be second to none in the whole district.
