GRAND FALL OPENING AND SALE.
' Thursday, Sept. 2lst. Your Needs
and Our Facilities.
The public has little direct interest in the growth of our business. Incidentally, however, your
confidence in our poods and our way will be created or confirmed by the knowledge of the fact that
steady, uninterrupted growth follows our efforts to make this store such as most people like to trade
at. This store's future is not behind. It is pleasant to see the enthusiastic and pleased crowds in
our store, making impressive the fact that we are receiving the public approval in constantly grow
ing measure. It tells us that in spite of human defects our storekeeplng is worthy were it not so
our business would not have grown from the once smallest to the now foremost store In the Tri-cities.
NOT A MATTER OF PRICE.
It's not altogether the matter of price alone that makes this so popular it's the excellent ser
vice, the elegant light, the exceedingly courteous employes, the enormous stocks and assortments,
the extraordinary roomness of the whole store which emphasizes itself as soon as you enter the
door. All things being equal, wouldn't any one rather buy tirsl-class, especially when it's an estab
tablished fact that the cheapest best goods are to be had here?
If Fall and winter goods.
This fall our facilities for supplying your
needs are practically unlimited. It's the tirst
winter season in our new store, hence we are
more anxious than ever to make this year's
showing more impressive' than ever, and from
present indications there is no doubt but that
our efforts are appreciated.
Our New Goods.
The fall and winter goods in every department
have been selected with u nusual care and at the
lowest prices. Our enormous baying facilities,
for two stores (Davenport and Peoria), enable us
to procure merchandise at a much lower figure
than any individual merchant can secure, and
now it's only a question of a chance to show you
the goods, whether you buy or not.
