Leggett’s March Ahead
to a Greater Fall Season with our largest stock of goods Worker-Farmer-share alike in our huge selections. Frequently we are asked as to “where we stand” on this question and that, concerning problems facing the future welfare of our community, state and nation. Always, our answer must be that, first of all, as merchants, we have genuine interest of “the people” at heart. Our business is with the masses. Our job, offering them the highest quality merchandise at the lowest possible price. These are principles upon which the greatBELK organization has been built — in the SOUTH! With over 115 department stores operating in four Southern states, this section has long been accustomed to looking upon BELK’S as a Southern organization! QUALITY and VARIETY of merchandise at various stores depends upon the needs of that community. I For instance, at BELK’S, in Charlotte, milady may purchase the finest fur coat or evening wrap, the same as at one of New York’s swankiest Fifth Avenue Shoppes. In Greenville, or Spartanburg, one may ob tain, immediately, from stock, 5,000 yards of tobacco plant covering cloth. We do not sell fur coats or tobacco cloth in Roanoke Rapids. There is no demand for that merchandise here. BUT — in Roanoke Rapids, we carry a $50,000.00 stock of carefully, “handselected” merchandise, j that fits the needs of this community. A greater stock, in a wider variety than will be found in any re tail store within a 50 mile radius Year after year (this is our fourth in Roanoke Rapids) we’ve strived to offer better selections. Each new day teaches something of the needs of our customers. LEGGETT’S WILL CONTINUE TO STRIVE TO PLEASE! We have CONFIDENCE in the future .. CONFIDENCE in the continued growth of our fine city . . CONFIDENCE in the welfare and progress I of its workers under the “New Deal” . . . CONFIDENCE in the old merchandising principle that if you conduct your business fairly, sharing the profits with your employees and customers, and continue to offer patrons MORE for their money, they will return to your store.
