Did sears and roebuck sell heroin in the early 1900s?
Yes. Several stores (including Sears and Roebuck) and catalogues sold heroin as a cough suppressant and alternative to morphine, though heroin is actually more dangerous. They sold a heroin syringe, two needles, and a carrying case for $1.50.

Richard Warren Sears and Alvah Curtis Roebuck were the founders of the American chain of department stores, Sears, Roebuck and Company, in the late 19th century. Richard Sears… learned telegraphy and got a job with the railroad, eventually becoming a station agent. A shipment of pocket watches from Chicago was refused by the purchaser. Sears, who was 23, bought the shipment himself and sold them to other station agents along the railroad line. In six months he had netted $5,000 and felt so confident that he founded the R.W. Sears Watch Company. In 1887 Sears moved his company from Minneapolis to Chicago and hired watch repairman Alvah Curtis Roebuck to repair any watches being returned. Roebuck was Sears's first employee, and he later became co-founder in 1893 of Sears, Roebuck and Company when Sears was just 30 years old. Roebuck left the company a few years later. The first Sears catalog offered only watches and was published the year the company was founded. By 1897, men and women's clothing, bicycles and other household goods were added. Sears retired at age 44. The 500-page catalog was sent to some 300,000 homes. In 1908 Sears began to sell mail order homes through the catalogs which was quite an innovation. Sears retired that year at 44 and died in 1914 at the young age of 51. In 1895, Roebuck asked Sears to buy him out for about $20,000. Later when asked about his ex-partner's great wealth, and his own modest wealth he replied: "He's dead. Me, I never felt better." Roebuck later served as president of Emerson Typewriter Company where he invented an improved typewriter. After the Stock Market crash in1929 he returned to Chicago and by 1933, he had rejoined Sears, Roebuck and Co., where he largely devoted his time to compiling a history of the company he helped found. He died in 1948 at the age of 84.
Yes they did! I live in a Montgomery Ward Kit House that was built in 1927. Montgomery Ward is stamped on all of the house's lumber.

Make sure it is not a reprint, these are common, but an original can be worth 25.00 to 40.00. The condition is a factor, too.
Yes, two doses and a syringe about $1.50. Back when it was legal to do so.
No. Alive animals were never sold.
Answer In 1980, Sears, Roebuck and Co. announced the formation of a corporate office and plans for major restructuring. This resulted in renaming the retai…l business the Sears Merchandise Group and the insurance business Allstate Insurance Group in early 1981. When Sears acquired the Dean Witter Reynolds Organization, Inc. and Coldwell Banker & Company later that year, it formed the Dean Witter Financial Services Group and the Coldwell Banker Real Estate Group. The following year, Sears formed a world trading company. It became Sears World Trade, whose activities were reduced and transferred to the Sears Merchandise Group in 1986.

Answer marlin made afew of there rifles Answer Dozens of US manufacturers and some foreign companies have made guns marked with various Sears tr…ade names. I doubt if a complete list can ever be compiled, but some of the major US companies include Crescent, Davenport, Fyrberg, Meriden (owned by Sears), Iver Johnson, J. Stevens, Savage, Harrington & Richardson, Marlin, and High Standard. Many Sears shotguns in the 1950's to 80's were actually Winchester products. From the late 1800's to about WWI, many were imported from Belgium.
The 12 gauge long tom 1900 shotgun by Sears and Roebuck is valued at $250 in excellent condition. In fair condition, it is valued at $80.

Alvah C. Roebuck was a co-founder of Sears and Roebuck along with Richard W. Sears. He went to work for Richard Sears in 1887, and the two ended up forming the company in 1893…. Roebuck took charge of the heavily technological division of the company, that sold optical goods, watches, phonographs, and more.
