OUR NINTH 20 CASH DISCOUNT SALE
MpQf torn mmm
For seven days July 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12 and 13
Our great July and January Discount Sales have be
come known far and wide as the foremost selling events
which take place in this vicinity. They are now looked
forward to as the time when every household sup
plies its wants for the months to come, and these
seven days will witness lively selling in all the de
partments of the store.
We want this to be the biggest sale yet because we
will soon move into our new upper floors and we
want as little merchandise to move as possible.
The success of these 20 Discount Sales is ascribed
to the fact that customers may buy virtually any
merchandise in the. store at a FIFTH OFF. Not
merely a few scattered articles at reduced prices, but
Get that point clear ANY MERCHANDISE
IN THE STORE AT SAVING OF ONE-FIFTH.
Our prices are marked in plain figures and the dis
count is deducted from the total amount of your
bill. Regardless of whether you buy 5c or $5 worth
or more, you save one-fifth.
Good? which have been selling at 15c a yard will
cost you but 12c; 20c goods, 16c; 50c goods, 40c; $1
goods, 80c, and so on.
Shoes which have been $4 a pair are now $3.20;
$3 ones, $2.40.
Rugs ordinarily $30 will cost but $24.
In some cases where articles have already been re
duced the discount is taken off the reduced prices.
When we say everything, we mean it in a broad
sense. There are a few things, such as spool cotton,
spool silk, patterns, certain brands of corsets, and
some toilet goods, which ve( are compelled to with
hold from the discount because the manufacturers
insist on our not selling below the retail prices fixed
by them. But these are very few.
This sale gives you the chance to buy the things
you have been wanting for the house, the family, or
yourself at a big saving.
Make out your list now.
Not again until our January sale will 'you have a
