OPEN LETTER TO OUR CUSTOMERS
Dear Sir or Madam
We have been thinking of the cold weather today and of you. We know that
coal costs money and that nearly all grocers are demanding spot cash for provisions.
The main object of this Company and our popular easy payment plan is to lend to the
comfort of our customers, and we have decided that we will only ask you to pay us one
half your usual cont'act payments this pay day. If you are in the habit of paying $25 bring
512.50: If your contract provides that you pay $5. just make it $2.50 this time and it
will be entirely.satisf&ctory with us.
Making half size payments will not in any way interfere with your making such addi
tional purchases of us as you may need.
Our popular easy payment plan is intended to make you live comfortably and it is
elastic enough to cover this cold weather situation that we are now up against. Your credit is
good with us. Come and use it.
