The F. Goodman Dry Good Co. has leased the large two-story double storehouse on Howard Street, next to the Ray Building, and will move their stock of high-class merchandise therein on the first of next January. Mr. Goodman proposes to largely increase his splendid stock, completely filling both stories with all the latest styles of everything in the line of fine dress goods, notions, millinery, etc., making one of the most up-to-date dry goods establishments in Mississippi.

From The Commonwealth, February, 27, 1914
Work on a handsome building, which will be occupied by the F. Goodman Dry Goods Company, will begin February 1, on the property owned by Dr. I. B. Bright, located at the corner of Howard and Church streets, directly opposite the post office building.
The new building will be two stories in height, fronting on Howard Street, and will be of the latest modern design and architecture.
The entire building will be occupied by the F. Goodman Dry Goods Company, whose steady growth and expansion in business has rendered larger and more commodious quarters necessary to accommodate their patrons and display their stock.
Handsome fixtures, especially designed for the store, will be installed, and the new building and store will be one of the handsomest and best appointed in the state.
R. J. Moor is the architect and S. L. McGinnis is the contractor.
The building will be ready for occupancy by August 1 of this year.
