STATEMENT BY E. P. MINTER.
The announcement of this sale com
ing just at this time will doubtless
cause many people to wonder why we
are doing it. It is a most unusual
move on our part coming just as it
does when wo are about ready to op
en the now Spring Season, but in a
mercantile business the same as in
other lines of business, there are al
ways conditions arising that makes
"things out of the ordinary" neces
sary. 1 can assure you that in an
nouncing this sale at thta time of the
year we have not done so without be
lieving that it will result in groat
benefits, not only to J. E. Minter &
Uro., but also to the people who take
advantage of this sale.
As is generally known I am inter
ested in the Southern Land <t Devel
opment Company, a company that is
developing one of the richest sections
of the South?at McBee, S. C?this
work Is taking the most of my time
and I llnd that the work at the store
that 1 am supposed to look after must
go neglected?we have decided to re
duce the steck preparatory to furth
er changes, just what they are wo are
not prepared to say at this time?
we want by the first of April to re
duce this stock as much ns possible?
by this we do not mean the winter
goods alone?of course we shall be
glad to sell as many winter goods as
possible, but in this Piercing Arrow
Sale, we shall include the entire
stock?absolutely nothing reser\ed. I
do not recall a time when an oppor
tunity of this kind should be as wel
come as the present?money matters
are not what they have been in the
past?the cotton market needs no com
ment from me?in ns far as it is
possible it will be our aim to offset
both the low price of cotton and oth
er conditions that have kept people
from buying as liberal ns usual, in the
unusually low prices that we will
make during these 19 days. Without
question it is going to mean more to
you than anything ever attempted in
a business way since this store opened
for business and we urge you all to get
your share of this good fortune. I
want to take this opportunity to thank
you one and all for your liberal pa
tronage and the confidence that you
have shown in this store in the past
and trust that in the future we may
continue to hold this confidence. This
announcement conies to you all ns a
personal invitation to come to this
snle. come whether you want to buy
or not, in either case you will receive
a hearty welcome.
Respect full v yours.
