We have an ideal of what a home furnishing store ought to be and we try to live
up to it to do by you as we would have you do by us. Good business is some
thing more than striving to catch the nimble dollar, for we value a friend more than a
sale. When you decide that, you would like to
furnish Your Home on Our Club Plan
we, on our part, resolve that your part and the easy terms of payment shall satisfy
so absolutely that, as your desires grow in the future for more furniture or furnish
ings, you will always think of this store first. You are to feel that we have acted
honorably with you and yours; that' the "Club Plan" is truly helpful. We welcome
all those who would like to talk it over with "The House of the Square Deal."
