Crowds of Thrifty Shoppers Throng Drennen’s
23rd Semi-Annual Mill End Sale.
You mustn’t confuse this recurrence of a fixed semi-annual event with any
other sale. It. is a real tried and proven distribution of dependable items.
This Mill End Sale is an event you know. Twice each year during the past 12
years it has contributed to your needs and has supplied you and yours with the
newest and best of the seasonable goods at just a fraction of their usual sell
ing price.
To those of you who are*new to Birmingham, we will say—This mod
ern house of Drehnen’s is one of a chain of stores that, together, guarantee
to take over and dispose of the entire surplus of the principal mills and
factories of the east—hence the name “Mill End Sale.” This present
sale is the 23d semi-annual event
and we can truthfully say that it is
bigger and bettor than <ho others
that have gone before. The stocks
are far more complete and better
selected, and, too, with age has come greater volume of business—that
means greater purchase and closer price—which for our own sake and for
the good of tile sale, we give you the full benefit of. It is our fixed de- fi
termination that each sale must be greater than the one before. Many '
Monday specials will greet the early callers tomorrow. Be one of them.
Just a word to the out-of-town shopper. This sale and every item in
it, from the basement, with its remnants and odds and ends at next to 1
nothing prices&o the Silks, Laces, Wash Goods, Hardware and Groceries
at Mil! End prices, is just as close and convenient to you as though in
W’v h'une town. The parcel post makes it so. We maintain the largest,
busiest and best organized mad
order department in the whole state.
