GOOD STORE SERVICE
The Ad r^an le a firm bf Hover In "Store Service," in order io get and
hold business; but he a lao know? that lhere are a groat many persons
who, from time to time prate loud and long about ".Store Service" who
haven't the faintest conception of the meaning of the term. They would
not know good "Store Service" if they met lt face to face in the middle
of tho road.
This brings to mind an occurrence of a few days ago, which certainly
wss a good example of "Store Service." without any exaggeration. A iiav<
elling man, by the name of lt. S. Therreli, representing Sprague Warner
& Co., was in thc city'calling on the two local grocers The Ideal Croc*
cry Co., and Thc Anderson Cash Grocery Co., the ones who have the ex
elusive agency for their goods In Anderson, and being told by one of the
grocers that they knew of a certain coffee prospect who, if once convinced
that their "Improved Vacuum" coffee was all that Sprague Warner & Co.
claimed for lt. that he would prove a very valuable customer. The sales
man, without a moment's hesitation, asked the groceryman to send for
that gentleman, so that he, the salesman, could meet him and tell him
All about the process through which this Improve;; Vacuum coffee had
gone through. In order to make it absolutely harmless. This done-the
gentleman called, and the salesman explained in detail, and in an inter
esting manner how the coffee was treated so as to rob lt of its injurious
properties, without in any manner detracting from thc elegant llavor or
the coffee; and after explaining this process, he asked permission of tho
customer to give him a pound package of this coffee free, so that ho
could try lt out thoroughly, and determine for himself, the merits of this
Of course, you will say that this was "geod business." lt w as good
business; but how many of us are broad minded, nnd far sighted enough
to grasp sn opportunity like this? There was no chance for any Im
mediate Returns from this giving away of n thirty live cent pn'kage of
coffee; but lt offered this representative of a truly great Grocery concern
an opportunity to demonstrate to one or his customers, thnt they were
not only willing, but anxious to aid them In building up a good business
on their line. That's where the "Store Service" came In.
Thia salesman also grasped this opportunity to tell this customer of
