of all other rot you read about. There aro times when sales lag and. whon certain pet plans do not balance with
our expectations. On other occasions we are favored by manufacturers in securing special discounts and other con
cessions which we in turn advertise. Underselling with us is either habitual or accidental, as the case may be, but
with all, you'll hnd us raaintaining a standard of prices that does honor to our establishment and your judgmerit.
We are oflbring you tho privilege of crcdit, not as a favor, but as the policy of our business. It's only a
matter of a small amount wcekly or monthly to pay off your heaviest bills.
