"Dare to Do Right!
Seven weeks ao, single handed and alone, we threw down the gauntlet
to vigorously fight against holding up war pricei of clothing and furnishlngi and to resist Uk
efforhj of legtlitrd corporations, private speculators and (lie combined efforts of local competitors to not only
maintain rxistinii hikli prlcM but to serve notice of intentions to demand further advance of priccrt at points of productiou.
Our "No Profit Sale" was our first weapon used against high prices and
excessive profits local competitors collectively urge'd, persisted and finally put their demands
in writing (which we published) that they be allowed to pass judgement on OUT of "misleading" the pub
lie. W believed then as wt liHieve now that the Public was tired of Thi Death Dance of KxtravaRaner" with high prices here
and excess profits there with not a place of economy in the whole spending system.
So we put up our merchandise at lowered prices as a wall against higher
prices, just the same as the wall of Liberty Bonds we took with others was necessary to strike
the enemies of our Nation that wc would do our utmost for the public good. Others were free to do the same
had they seen fit. We have no coypright or patent on business.
Though the record of our whole business life is clear that we never
baited a mercantile hook with unknown or "orphan" or "sweat shop" products to attract pat
rons, there at once appeared amongst competitors only, antagonistic barkings of accusations in about 57 var
ieties. We were also besieged by certain producers of goods to not sell their goods nt less than current prices as though we
were their hirelings and not merchants working for the public good in a time of great discontent, using the merchandise which
we owned and paid for that came to us raised to double and treble prices, from which wc lopped off oilr usual profit in the move
mcnt as a beginning to stave off continuance of prevailing high prices.
We have a list of manufacturers who urgently demanded that prices
must be kept up to their standards, etc., etc., the publishing of which would clearly indicate
where and how high prices and excessive profits originate and arc upheld. Wc also have a list of competitors
who have written protests to certain manufacturers demanding that we hereafter be refused certain lines of apparel because
our business methods were according to their viewpoint, "unethical" and our prices "against good business."
Perhaps we shall publish this list. While it is contrary to our principles
and practices it may in a measure help to convince the public that high wages of the laboring
classes are not entirely to blame for the high cost of certain articles of Men's wearing apparel.
We submit we have kept the faith that the people's stamp of approval
of the measures we adopted have compensated our every effort and that the insistence first
given that our prices were and would be lower and that our buyers shall NOT make commitments for mer
chandise at advanced prices has been effective for the public good. ,
Our dare to do right and the doing of it at the right time, in making a
practical and successful protest against combinations holding up war prices and attempting
to persist in mercantile advances in prices is our Declaration of business independence and every business day
of every week is our day of celebration.
So long as the wholesale market offers "breaks" in prices, the Curtis
Brown store will continue to reflect them in full. For this store was built on VALUES, is grow
ing on VALUES and will continue to grow that way. If it isn't one thing making better values it is another; for
where there's a will to lower prices and better values, there's a Curtis Drown way!
By This We Shall Stand!
Everybody haa a hobby. So have tee. Oura ia to mark
