We have decided to to take a step in a business way that means the ANNIHILATION OF PRICES,
If means the closing out of one of the oldest branches of our large mercantile business It means
greater energy directed toward serving the men of Honolulu for we are
Retiring from the Dry Goods Business
arid to .quickly get rid of the stock to. make room for Men's Clothing andtre-arrange the tailoring de- :
partment we are going to offer all of the lines heretofore carried for the ladies of Honolulu at
prices less than half formerly charged.
Closing Out Sale Is Now Oh
The enlarged department will be opened on a plan never before
attempted in this city. We have the store, the locality and the
knowledge of the wants of men in the clothing line. The new
fixtures will be of a character which for novelty and stupendous
ness has never been seen outside of New York City.
