The article focuses on the passage of local legislation requiring furniture stores to be licensed by New York City's Department of Consumer Affairs. It could be noted that Helen Sears wanted to license and regulate furniture stores due to growing consumer fraud by some store owners. She recommended that the department should be given the authority to revoke them if they broke contracts with their customers. Under the law, furniture retailers are required to provide customers with delivery date.
