Did You Ever Stop to Think ? If Not, Do So Now
Furnishing a home nowadays can be well or poorly done it all de
pends on where you buy your furnishings
It stands home outfitting buyers in hand to be wary of furniture bargains. "Bargains" so-called, that are to be had in endless var
iety. In many cases regrets would be a better word than "bargains."
W. S. Holbrook gives you high value at low cost. The housewife need never feel that the low price paid here for any article implies in-
feriorit' or old style. Here is where the idea of reasonable prices is always maintained; where the best and choicest Furniture, Car
pets and Rugs, Etc., are always found and sold at low prices. Low prices and genuine worth make genuine bargains. Bargains that
can be depended upon, and nowhere else can you get equal value for your dollars, as at the Big Busy Store.
