we tell again the story of the
Orkin Brothers piano club
m That there can be no misunderstanding; let us again tell that 2 hundred and 57 dollars and 50
cents includes everything the Orkin Brothers piano club member has to pay. In other words, it
is the outside price or the extreme price.
IF The pianos are of the most reliable and trustworthy sort
worth 350 dollars each.
JF To sell them and sell them quickly we planned and organized
a gigantic club. A club of 500 members, each and every mem
ber to enjoy the same advantages and privileges,
1F We decided to sell the pianos in this way at 257 dollars and
50 cents each. )
iF We arranged to sell then without adding interest to the
We placed the payments at 5 dollars as the first payment, and
1 dollar and 25 cents a week tor the remaining payments.
The price ($257.50) included everything charging nothing
more for any privilege extended members. We agreed to give
club members their money back if a 30 days' trial of the piano
We arranged a year's exchange privilege for members, which
enables them to exchange their pianos at any time within one
year without meaning one penny's loss.,
We got up a life insurance feature for members, which can
cels all payments in event of the death of a club member.
We figured out a rebate system so that those who want to pay
faster than $1.25 a week will profit by it by getting a rebate of
IS cents in cash handed back for each and every week they
pay in advance.
Boiling the whole plan right down we put into the plan every
advantage and privilege that would suggest itself to us to make
this big inaugural sale an instant success.
And it has been.
One hundred and forty-eight members have joined the club.
Cannot we have your application? Can we not at least show
you the pianos and go over the whole proposition with you?
