THE STORY OF THEIR SUCCESS.
W.C. Van Sant
Of the firm of Miner & Van Sant, is an Ohio man, and hails from Columbus,
where he first saw the light of day in 1861. For a number of years, Mr. Van
Sant was connected with the Buckeye Buggy Company of Columbus, during the
last six of those years having charge of their carriage warerooms in San
Francisco, and being general agent for all of their business west of the
Missouri river. With such a business experience, and possessed of
indomitable energy, Mr. Van Sant has made the new undertaking a success
from the start.
The firm deals in all kinds of hardware, tools and cutlery, and since their
start have more than doubled the business formally done. During the present
month they will put in the finest sample-room of fine bronze, builders'
hardware on the coast, surpassing anything of the kind in San Francisco.
