Are You This Way.
If you are perfectly happy we can't do anything for you. It's pretty
hard, to do business with a man if he thinks he has everything he wants in
tr ^ ./orId. But if you are not perfectly satisfied with your clothes?
?.? you want a new Easter suit for Easter time so that your wife won't take
the shine off you, or if the boys want something nice and new to wear then
we are the people to help you.
THERE ISNT A BETTER PLACE.
If there is a place in Laurens where you can buy clothes to better
advantage than you can here we want you to tell us where it is. We are de
termined.to please our patrons and we are going to leave no stone unturned
to do it if you will give us a chance. It is up to you to do that.
If you get a new suit here and are not pleased with it or find it not
as represented we will make it right with you. That is a fair deal isn't
it? We couldn't do any more for you.
Our supply of seasonable goods is very large, we have a fine display
of men's, boys' and children's suits, the qualities are excellent and the
prices are extremely low*
