THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: WEDNESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 31, 1890.
THE PEOPLE'S STORE.
A Happy and Prosperous New Year to
Our Friends and Patrons.
Plums from the Great "Falk" Clothing Failure on Sale
Today—Our Drug Department Still Full of Bar
gains—A Long List of Big Values.
People's Stork, Wednesday, December SI, 1800.
We bid our friends and patrons a happy and prosperous New Year. May
you all live to see many, many pleasant returns of the day, and realize the
wishes that heretofore have seemed but dreams.
We turn the page and enter the tenth year of our mercantile existence.
We are thankful to the public for the generous patronage they have bestowed
upon us; and will endeavor in the future to place such values before you that an
increase in our trade will evidence our worth in the community.
We have been a conundrum to the mercantile community that they have
been unable to solve. It has been openly stated time and time again that the
People's Store was on its last legs—that it was on the verge of bankruptcy, and
that a few well-directed blows would finish it up lorever. Well, the credulous
may take whatever stock they please in these "observations." True it is that if
you come into our stores and see the prices at which we have lines of goods
marked, you might imagine it was a conversion of goods for money at ruinous
prices. It is our price aloiie that gives the semblance of an unsteady concern.
If we never do another day's business we want to go out of the year 1800 with
blowing horns and flying colors, and we will quote prices below that will make
each department teem with business and wind up our year's sales with a total
that will bring satisfaction and content all around.
We direct ourselves to each individual in need of merchandise: If you
trade with us today, tomorrow and during the coming year, we will earn money
for you by saving it on the cost of goods. This is our claim for your trade. If
we fail in our assertions we do not merit it.
Look at the suits we advertise today ;
if our statements are exaggerated take
no stock in them in future. Cash is the ,
magnet that makes our purchases. Do j
you know its power? See our values
From the great "Falk" clothing fail
ure we secured the following plums:
A dark cheviot suit, in frocks; all
wool; splendid material. Our price, S
|10.26; Mr. Falk asked wholesale $13.50, |
and the retailer couldn't sell it under
Prince Albert suits, our price, $21.60;
Falk's price, $25. No retailer could sell
it under $80.00.
Falk was a large Broadway, New York,
clothing house, that failed for half a
million. We have other items that we
reserve for publication, but are on sale
at less than cost of manufacture.
