Merely to *nhpgunce our August Sale of Furs this year, without an explant

an iniustlc. - - -
To state it briefly: * - f
Raw pelts are now- low in price. There is, however, a great lak - skille4
labor, due to a strike which started several months ago (mention of which was
made in our June Sale annoutcement). The strike, is still on, with no indica
tion as to when it will end, and every furrier, designer and cutter in New York
is out. This condition has tied up the Fur industry to the extent that not - a
manufacturer is operating.
The strikers will not return to work unless they gain their points (shorter
hours and higher wages), and having accomplished this the extra cost which will have
to be added to every garment makes it practically impossible for Furs to- come
down in price. In fact, we are so certain that there will be no decline in
prices later in the season that we will guarantee the August Fur Sale price -until
December 1, 1920.
Fortunately, Lansburgh & Brother Furs were bought some time before the
strike, the assortment is the handsomestever assembled in August, the prices
are 25% to 40% lower than the present Fur market makes possible.
