Big and Busy Store’’ SALISBURY. MARYLAND Do you know the facts about building costs? Do you know that lumber and buildings materials are down? Have you talked to us lately about building ? Do you know how reasonably you can make needed repairs, build your new home, or remodel your old one? Better get in touch with the situation at once. j ' The big building program that was expected in 1920 failed to de velop. The manufacturers were caught with too large stocks, and were forced to turn them over at almost cost. We can show you a substantial saving in every item in our line. But it’s only fair to tell you this condition may be only temporary. The country is short more than a million homes. When people begin to do this long delayed building, demand will increase rapidly, creating another shortage of materials, and prices will advance again. If you are planning to build, remodel, or repair, come in and let us give you figures. Then when we show you the actual savings over last year’s prices and show you how favorably present costs compare with those of 1914, make your own decision. Get in touch with us today.
