We Offer All Our Dry Goods, Notions and Shoes at COST for TEN DAYS
By Cost, we mean the cost to us when placed in the store. We know it is early to put on a sale like
this, but we need money. Cost here means a net saving of from twenty-five to thirty per cent for you.
Get prices elsewhere, then come to us, where you will find you can buy for CONSIDERABLY LESS.
Remember, too, that we Handle Nothing but FIRST-CLASS MERCHANDISE
This is no fake. We mean exactly what we say-that you can buy anything in the store for exactly
what it cost us.
Sale Begins Thursday, May 6th, and Continues for Ten Days
Be sure to get our prices before you buy your dry goods and shoes. If we can't save you money
we won't ask you to buy?
