In 1884 the second Goehner block was built at the corner of Sixth and Seward when Fred went into the hardware business. Fred tended the hardware store and Peter continued in the general merchandise business. The Goehner family operated three businesses in Seward: the general store (1873-1973); the hardware store (1884-1970s); and a furniture store operated by a relative.

Goehner Brothers General Store sold groceries, shoes, piece goods, men’s clothing, kitchen and dining ware, and general merchandise. They also sold imported articles ordered from Joel Bailey Davis in Philadelphia and Marshall Fields in Chicago. It was one of the first stores in the country to sell Lee overalls. Peter Goehner blended a special coffee that became a noted product of the store. The coffee was hand-ground into the 1960s. The store sold coffee to Concordia College.
