To Hay No ! How hard that is to do In all spheres of Hie. To say no ! and mean
it is one thing that very few people have learned to do. flow long have soma mer
chant been in business and still have not learned have not the courage as)
it were to say It, when asked by a customer: "Is this piece of goods all wool, alrt "1
want to bur a good all-wool suit tor $7, Will you guarantee It to be all wool and
to wear well?" The merchant who ran say no, knows his business, and deserves
a monument. In other words to tell tbe truth and lose a customer thereby la on
of tbe hardest things to do. All business men are fully couguizant of the
fact, and give a their reason; "Well, if 1 had told them the truth, 1 would
have lost the customer, and my competitor made the sale."
Well, we have lieen in business long enough to know bow to say, No. We
will tell tbe truth il we never make a sale. We will never misrepresent a garment to
sell !t. We may loan you once, but if we sell you once we aell you alwaya. Should
we happen to be mistaken in our iudirment and to err is human we will satisfy you
if we have to go so far as to refund you yourmoneyjand allow you to keep the goods.
For the trutululuess of the above, we reler you to any of our customers.
