A QUESTION OF PRICE.
Many people judge quality by price and so
measure all advertisements by this one rule.
It's a mistake. You can't measure the quality
of our goods with that of other stores. We
seek the best and we get it. Then we use the
low price argument, and have at all times the
very goods advertised. Hence the every
popularity of Glenn's store.
No doubt you are getting ready to attend
our Fair which will be held next week and
probably you will want a New Dress, a pair of
shoes, and many other things. Your brother,
father or husband may want a suit of clothes,
a hat. shoes or probably other nice clothing. If
so, it will be to their's and your interest to see
