THE BAILEY IMPLEMENT COMPANY

"D.V. (Vic) Bailey announced that the new addition to the Bailey Implement Company has been completed giving them 2200 square feet more working space. Vic completed his original building, modern in design, in 1946, and they have found with their increased business that they needed more room.
A month ago Jennings and Churella started work on the new addition and today it is complete. The room will be devoted entirely for service work. In this connection, announcement was made that Virgil Kissel will be the service manager, and that he has had eighteen years experience in garage work, formerly with Buick, Pontiac, Oldsmobile and Cadillac garages in Ashland.
"Vic" has been a New London resident for 21 years and is a native of Ashland. He is still in the trucking business but now in a different capacity -- that of selling International Trucks. The Company is also dealer for International Farm Equipment and Refrigerators as well as a Pontiac Dealer. Mr Bailey is proud of the fact that he will now be in a better position than ever before to give excellent and prompt service and hopes that you will come and see their new building.
The personnel of the Company now includes: Walter Broughton-salesman, Dean Bailey and Lewis Smith-parts department, John E. Schneiter, Glenn Hess and Lester Rader-mechanics."

Bailey's Pontiac is today still one of New London's major businesses, now operated by Vic's grandchildren, David, Dan and Deana. Vic passed away on January 15th, 1996 and was buried in Sullivan, Ohio. I might add that my mother-in-law, Dorothy Fetterman, purchased an International freezer in 1948 and it ran until 1983. We still have it in the basement and now store photo albums in it!
