To The Pu About four years ago when we were just about to open our doors to the buying public of Olympia and vicinity—different well meaning people informed us that, we could never succeed unless we sold our merchandise on credit. The enormous business the J. ('. Penney Company is enjoying in their Olympia store is conclusive evidence that our well meaning friends did not realize the great size and importance of this organ ization. If you wont breathe it. to a soul we will tell you a secret; The J. C. Penney Company can and does open a store adding another link to the great chain, with an amount of cash money—about, equal to what is an absolute dead loss—in a very few years to the merchant that sells merchandise on credit. A credit store accumulates in a very few years, bad debts that cause them enormous losses. The customer that does pay his debts to the credit store generally has to be charged an extra amount to offset the loss. This Is a fact now generally known. J. C. Penney Company's method of frequent turnovers at small margin of profits has placed us in a position that we are proud of and especially at the present time. We had very little high priced merchandise in our store when the price slump came, so our losses were small; which enables us to give our customers as always the Rock Bottom prices. You will be interested to know that we are now manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers of the best merchandise that it is possible to obtain. One price to all and that the very lowest possible. Largest organization in the United States selling everything you wear. Signed— lift-117-119 last oth street.
