Dodson Seed Store was located at 204 W. Main St., Danville, Illinois for many years.  The store was known for being the only in this area that packaged their own seed.  Mrs Dodson sold more than just seed, she also sold pet supplies, china vases and knickknacks, mostly high end products not found in the dime stores of the day. By the 1970's the store was in decline, when the David S. Palmer Arena was built, the store relocated to Liberty Lane and closed a short time after that.

The Stecher Lithograph in Rochester, New York, was a major printer of catalogs, posters, and labels for the Rochester seed and packing industries.  The company was acquired in 1936 by the Traung Lithographic Company of San Francisco to form Stecher-Traung with their main production facilities in San Francisco.
