THE spirit of helpfulness that pervades
this store is one of its great attractions
the spirit of value giving and the
security of quality and satisfaction are great
points. It's a pleasant thing in spending
money to know that you are getting the best
value for every cent of it. Buying here is
simply an exchange: we give, and mean to
give, more than we get. If you're not sure
of this, we'll make you so, somehow. With
this idea, and . in this spirit, this store has,
grown great. Ours is not a "Stormy
Growth" but a steady swinging advance that
does not recede, a business built, on such
confidence should endure.
Never before, in any season, have trade
conditions so greatly puzzled the manufac-t
turer and favored the alert retailer. Some
great purchases we have recentlyv made of
leading makers close to the price of produc
tion, are direct results of these uncertain con
ditions. You find in this store every day
many of these bargains which are never ad
vertised because impossible of detailed des
criptions in print, but which the customers
here are constantly securing. Many new
and money saving offerings arc coming al
most every day. ' "
