A Happy New Year,
Happy in this store because it will bs a great bargain
month, because prices will drop into insignificance. Because
the visible impressions of cost will be largely removed, and
qualities will be just as good as they ever were.
Prices will be reduced on all regular winter goods, and yet
1 '11 1 it
f i-i prp vt hpthi'pp nr
v.w - v.i.v- w
customers to get value received lor tneir money.
January begins making room for April. Winter
backs out and bows out for Spring. It is the time when prep
arations for a new season commences, and the first operation
consists in marking down and closing out goods that you want
--that we don't want.
January is your month, not ours.
One Item of Special Interest Is Dress Goods. A
great bulk of our stock goods worth from 37 1-2C. to 75c. per
yard, will be closed out
At 25 Cents Per Yard.
Other and better lots just as cheap.
