A Frank Statement
to the People of Hones
dale and Vicinity :
I WANT to get the trade of all the best people in
Honesdale by proving that it will pay them
to give me their business.
Don't mistake my meaning when I say the
"best" people. I have in mind the business, not the
social, value of the man or woman when I say "best";
and while the rich and well-to-do are of course in
cluded in my meaning of "best," the word expresses
much more than that.
The "best" class of trade is that largest number
of the people of Honesdale who are thrifty; who
look ahead; who plan to get the best value for the
price they pay. They are settled; expect to remain
here; have an interest in the general progress of
our town ; and have an eye to the future in behalf of
their children and their children's children.
The "best" trade is not all rich, or even well-to-do,
now; but it is far-sighted; has a good memory;
and in time will buy more and more, and better and
finer things, of the jeweler from whom it now buys
the best it can afford if the jeweler deserves their
continuing good will. This "best" trade stays with
the jeweler who proves to his customers that it is
best for them to stay with him.
My plan -for getting this "best" trade is to invari
ably sell what is best for my customer to buy. She
does not always know what is best to buy; I do. I
propose to put my knowledge entirely at her service,
ignoring the temporary advantage to me in selling
her what would (at present) pay me best to sell her.
I am not looking for temporary gains ; I am building
for the future on the foundation-rock of the public
confidence. I am after, and will get, that confidence,
whatever it costs nie in present profit on articles that
it would pay me, now, to sell but would not pay
my customer, to buy.
I tell you frankly that I am no philanthropist;
I am simply looking out for my interests when I
look out for your interests ; I want your trade twen
ty years from now as well as to-day; so I've got to
make it pay you to deal with me by selling to you
only such goods as will prove to you the advantage
in dealing with me the really worthy goods, and
none other. The "just-as-good" kinds (which are
never just as good) will have no place in this store.
The "best" class of trade the rich, and the fairly
comfortable, and the thrifty poor will not stay with
the jeweler who sells disappointing goods; and I
want that "best" trade.
The jewelry business is different from most others.
In many other lines of trade the buyer can bank on
her own judgment, more or less in buying cloth
ing, groceries, house furnishings, and what not. But
she does not have she cannot have any valuable
judgment as to the difference, say, in two grades of
diamonds, or two makes of watch cases. She must
go by her faith in the jeweler; just as she must go by
her faith in the doctor, or the lawyer, or the banker.
Consequently, in no other line of merchandise is
there greater opportunity for deception, or for
selfishness, than the jewelry business presents, for
the customer must rely on the jeweler to treat her
Just in proportion as the customer's ignorance of
values is greater than when buying other merchan
dise, the jeweler's responsibility is greater in selling.
Therefore, if the jeweler would build up anenduring
business a business that would constantly widen
through the favoring word of pleased customers
he must secure that public confidence which is as
much a part of his capital as it is of a banker's capi
tal. So I shall strive to deserve the confidence of the
people of Honesdale by invariably selling what is
best for the customer to buy; by stating values as
they truly are, in exact knowledge of their worth;
and by an unvarying practice of "the square deal."
H. G. ROWLAND, Jeweler,
Main Street, HONESDALE.
