We appreciate that ever-increasing measure of
j public confidence in this Live Store which has helped us ]
| make a new high record in volume of business for this year. We never abuse
| that confidence through make=believe sales or something-for-nothing offerings.
But at the season's end we make a clean sweep of every Suit and Overcoat in
the store at legitimate price reductions, for we never carry goods over from
one season to another.
Having done a straight business with straight mer- J
Ichandise at straight prices every day of every week, these January 1
reductions on all clothing on hand involves not the slightest question or doubt as I
to the quality of the merchandise nor the exact amount of real money you can now 1
save. II
This DOUTRICH event has nothing in common |
with other so-called reduction sales. It is not the result of t
* bad merchandising judgment or anybody's mistake. It is simply a stroke of
good business—a method'of keeping the pledge we have made to Harrisburg
people, and we say it sincerely and in all earnestness; profit is a secondary
consideration with us now. For what we lose in money, we more than make
up in the measure of good will which such events as this have won for the f
Live Store.
Reductions Begin To-morrow, January 2nd. j
