Weil's sold women's wear: dresses, coats, suits, etc. but was not in business for very long. William G. Schwandt and Lester B. Fitzpatrick were the real estate brokers at Schwandt Realty Company. Their company handled sales, rentals, real estate management and insurance. They were members of the National Association of Real Estate

"The Sportsman came into being when Clavey's Hardware Store (at 612 North Milwaukee Avenue) decided to put all their sporting goods on sale in one spot in 1950. In 1951 the sports store was at 110 Lake Street. They moved to 608 North Milwaukee Avenue in 1952 and remained in business there until 1960. They sold guns and ammunition, fishing tackle, and sports equipment for archery, golf, tennis, hockey, baseball, football and basketball. They also sold Illinois and Wisconsin fishing and hunting licenses."
