In 1902 Schleider's Sons Co. (original name) opened it's doors as a general store that handled groceries and dry goods. It also operated a cotton warehouse and provided a wagon yard where farmers unharnessed their teams to feed and rest while they shopped, and a saloon to serve locals and passengers waiting for trains at the passenger depot across the street. Prohibition ended the saloon business and helped redefine Schleider's as a home furnishing store.

Most of their sales staff has been a part of their operation for decades. In fact they have two generations of two different families on the sales floor today. Schleider's has had a continuous business presence in Brenham for 115 years and counting. Brenham,Texas. 3.29.2013.

Glad it is still in business. The c e out sale board was worrisome. A fine neon sign.
