Jacob Cohen worked briefly as a peddler before opening his own clothing store on Bangor’s Broad Street in 1898-99.
His clientele were mostly woodsmen and farmers who bought his shirts, coats, boots and dungarees. Jews established clothing stores in towns throughout Maine.
Cohen was born in Russia and moved to Bangor with his family in 1884. His wife, Alice, also was born in Russia.
