GOOD FURNITURE
WITHIN REACH OF H.
SIMPLY because you have a moderate income is no reason why you
should buy cheap, unsatisfactory home furnishings.
Under the old C. 0. D. system immediate need sometimes forced the
buying of unattractive, badly made things, simply because they were
low in price. There is no excuse for this sort of buying now. Our sys
tem of partial payments has done away with it. There is no longer any
reason why you should not have good, substantial, handsome, genuine,
comfortable furniture in your home. You can get the best from us and
pay for it a little at a time as your income permits. Let us tell you
about this system and let us show you our attractive offerings today.
