(Continued on page 4)
Economists have insisted that if it were possible
to eliminate ull credit and put the business of the
country on a cash basis, over night prices would drop
25 per cent.
Something muNt be done to reduce the price of
everything, from ships to shoes; and the KEGAL
KIIOE HTOltE, about to begin business in its at
tractive new home, in the heart of the shopping dis
trict, on Fort Street, adjacent to Henry May's, has
decided on a plan which will mean a saving to you
of a tidy sum on buying a pair of shoes.
On saying this we are announceing a sew policy
and we believe, turning a corner on U. G. L w far
us footgear is concerned. A business run on even a
conservative credit basis, as regards both the pur
chase and sale of goods, adds to the cost of the
article when it reaches the ultimate consumer, of
from 10 to 20 per cent a sum represented by book
keeping, stationery, stamps, credit reports, collec
tions and losses from unpaid accounts.
War has consumed the leather reserve of the
world, and a reflection of this situation is seen ia
the price of shoes. The REGAL BHOE STORE,
after a1 painstaking study of the shoe market, and
eager to get down the price of shoes, has decided to
begin business in its new home on a pay-as-yoa-buy
basis. This is the one way in onr power to save you.
By taking advantage of the full trade diacounta for
cash settlements, and eliminating all expense inci
dent to customers' accounts, we will be able to it
you with the best shoes made in America at a figure
far below present prices under a credit system.
In a few days we will show you, in figures, the
exact details of this saving.
We enter upon this new policy with optimism,
confident that the people of Hawaii will co-operate
with us in our experiment. Of course, it goes with,
out saying that our new home, handsomely furnish,
ed and stocked to suit the most discriminating; will
win instant appreciation.
