Invite you to visit their store (to see their new
stock of Spring Goods. You will certainly be sur
prised as we are quite sure you have never seen any
thing to equal this stock in Pickens County.
.Months have been spent in getting ready for this first showing of New
spring Goods. .Every department in this establishment has been getting ready,
and especially is this true in our Ladies' Ready-to-Wear and Millinery Depart
.We have made extensive improvements in the interior of our store by ad
ding new fixtures and making a large skylight in the roof, thereby flooding the
entire store with light.
We are anxious for you to visit our store and see the beautiful line of
Spring and Summer Goods that we now have on display. *We fesl sure that
whatever your needs may be you can fill them here. All under one roof, with R
less'trouble than at any other store in this part of the country.
True economy is a problem we all have to grapple with in this time of high
costof .everything. To economize one must study values in their relation to
price, aiming to secure the best value at the price asked.
We believe you will find at this store the greatest values in new and stylish
springiouter apparel to be found anywhere in this section of the state.
We believe that a visit to our Ready-to-Wear section will' convince you of
the savings we are able to offer in Spring Suits, Coats, Waists, Skirts and
Also our Millinery Department, where you will find on display one of the
most attractive lines of Millinery ever shown in Easley. This department is in
charge of Miss Haley and assistants.
Certainly it will pay you to visit this store when in Easley; therefore we
extend this cordial invitation to come and look whether or not you are intend-.
ing to buy.
