possible prices on EVERYTHING. Our prices are uniformly low on all our goods. Our stock is one of
the largest and most complete in the city.
Our customers will tell you that this store is not only one of the largest, but the best store in which I
to purchase their home needs. In fact, our customers really prove to be our advertisers and they
have done it very well indeed. We believe thoroughly in a business system that will convince the cus
' tomer that what he purchases here is at least ju3% a little better for the same money, or as good for less
money than he can obtain it for elsewhere. /
This is the system which has built up our business to its present large proportions and is still doing
good work for us. We try our best to give our customers the most for their money and our Experience
has been that the customer can always be depended upon to return the favor in some good way.
