The method of the Oriental booth and bazaar with their practices of barter and trickery
have entirely disappeared from business houses of the first class, and woe be to that merchant

Forty years ago, this store adopted the principle of absolute protection to the buyer. Every
article must be exactly as represented and our interest in the customer never ceases. He must
