On October 1 st This House of Better Values Will go on
STRICTLY CASH BASIS
This is no reflection on your credit standing, but it is just another step we are
taking in modern merchandising.
Modern merchandising demands shorter profits, better values, better service,
faster turning over of capital, buying for cash and selling for cash.
We take this opportunity to thank our many charge customers as well as our
cash customers for their very liberal patronage in the past and under this
new system we promise to give you the very best there is in us to help lower
the High Cost of Living.
