ALISBURY Merchants want to appeal to you to do your trading here. In order
jggp to get your attention and hold it, the Merchants of Salisbury will put on one of
the biggest Shopping Weeks that has ever been attempted in the State, beginning next
Tuesday, October 28th and running through Saturday, November 1st. You are invited
to visit the merchants of Salisbury, and if an out-of-town-citizen to be their guest a
day during Shopping Week. Listen to a few words about
$ The Rowan Dollar $
The Rowan dollar is your dollar. Has it ever occured to you Mrs. Housekeeper, that the money spent in Rowan is
your money; that when it goes to your neighbor it comes back to you? I)o you ever think, Mr. Householder, that
when you send money to other states you are robbing yourself; that you patronize your own pocketbook when you
* trade in Salisbury? You have an equal chance to get the Rowan Dollar and its little cousins, the nickels and dimes.
Money sent away from Rowan stays away a long, long time. It matters not if you can get passes, if you are an
employee of the railroad, it costs you something for hotel bills an other unnecessary expenses to trade in distant
cities, and too, the merchant you l»uy from is not your neighbor, nor iB he doing anything to help progress in your
county or section.
Every article of commerce can be bought in Salisbury. ' If it’s dry goods, clothing, hardware, automobiles, carri
- ages, shoes, groceries, novelties, printing, bread, drugs, furnitue, jewelry, meats, books and stationery, pianoes, you
can buy them in Salisbury and at the same time keep your money in your home county. Toss the mail order house
catalogues into the fire and call on a Salisbury merchant. Buy from the Salisbury merchant, he is your neighbor.
He pays taxes here. He is buying from you. His dollar is your dollar. Let your dollar be his dollar. Don’t
go to distant towns to do your trading. It’s all in the family—the Rowan Family. Let’s cultivate a family spirit.
Think for Rowan. Keep Rowan in your heart. Act for Rowan. Buy from Rowan. Let these words sink
deep. There’s money for you in trading in Salisbury. Begin with

With the large number of modern stores, carrying as complete line of merchandise as you will find in North Caro»
lina, along with the good treatment and reasonable prices given by the merchants here, there is no need of you going
anywhere but to Salisbury to do your shopping. Not only next week but all the time. To out out'of~town~buyers a
5 per cent. Cash Refund will be given during Trade Week to cover transportation and hotel or cafe fare. Each mers '
chant will make his own refunds—to explain it—if you buy $10 worth of goods, you give the merchant a $10 bill and
he will give you back 50 cents. You must let the merchant know that you are a visitor in order to get your cash i
refund. j
Because your interests are in this county. Because the county that is good enough for you to live in is good
enough for you to trade in. Because it pays to transact business with your friends and neighbors. Because you
can get what you pay for. Because every dollar you spend in the county stays in the county and helps work for its
welfare. Because the merchant you buy from stands back of the goods, and you can see what you are buying. Be*
cause you make your living iu this county, and sell what you have to sell here. Because the merchant you buy from
pays his part of the state, county and city taxes. Because the merchant you buy from helps support your school,
your church, your lodge and your home. Here is where you live and here is where it will pay you to trade. ;

the same money, get your 5 per cent cash refund to cover transportation, etc., and in addition you will have some
