Kauai Stores Make Ready
For A Very Large
Although it was for a long time
feared that Ksuai stores would
have difficulty in obtaining ade
quate Christmas stocks this year
(owing t the disturbed conditions
in Europe, where most Christmas
novelties have tn the past been
madejthe situation is now consid
erably cleared and a few of the
stores are already forward with
their holiday displays, while others
will be ready in the course of a
At Waimea, Hofgaard & Com
pany have opened the season with
an elaborate display of Christmas
novelties and staples. To assem
ble this stock it was necessary to
enter several markets, but now
that the items are all together the
trouble seems to jnstify itself in
the splendid showing. Not only
are American and Continental
Europe novelties displayed, but
there are attractive lines of Nor
wegian, Hawaiian and Oriental
specialties for holiday' needs. The
Christmas sale at "Hofgaard's" is
now in full blast.
Manager Roendahl. of the Mc
Bryde Store, is also in the lead
with an elaborate and beautiful
stock of Christmas goods. Fore
seeing the difficulties likely to
come in the way of shipments for
the holidays, he made preparation
long ago with the result that his
shelves and display vantages are
literally bulging with the choicest
and most attractive items that were
to be obtained. Anjj inspection of
the offerings at the McBryde Store
will be found well worth while.
The Koloa Plantation Store is
also well stocked with Christmas
novelties and staples, and will be
ready this week to begin holiday
business. Manager Buchholtz has
devoted many years to the study
of the requirements of the trade in
the Koloa district, and his experi
ence will be reflected in the com
pleteness of his Christmas stock
Lihue store is a few days behind
this year, owing to unusual cir
cumstances, but next week will
fairly "bloom forth" in the most
elaborate holiday showing ever at
