The Macy Salespeople
are not mere order takers. They arc experts in their various
lines, students of the merchandise they handle.
For this reason they are sought out at all hours of the day
by shoppers who arc in doubt.
If you have had trouble
with the shoes you have been
wearing, consult the experts
in the shoe department.
If you arc in a quandary as
to whether a certain color
combination in a hat or a
costume would be "becom
ing" to you, ask the advice of
the young women at Macy's
who have made matters of
this kind a careful study.
The salesperson who does
not knew more about the goods
he sells than the customer
who buys them is not up to
the Macy standard of effi
ciency. Our salespeople must be
more than milling to serve
they mt'st be able to serve.
