This sale of
magnificent new
Fall inter Coat
$9Q50 S/1Q.50
We knew that the women of Birmingham would just as
soon buy their coats in September as in November, pro
viding sufficient price, quality inducements were of
fered. We said so when we placed these coats on sale. Our
judgment has been proved correct!
In announcing this sale of coats to the women of Bir
mingham, we heralded it as the event extraordinary—the
event triumphant. We did this because we knew we were
offering the most unusual coat values that we ever placed
before the shopping public at the very beginning of a sea
son. The response has been most gratifying.
Discriminating women came in throngs and bought lib
erally—but don’t think for a moment that this sale con
cerns a small group of both styles that could be exhausted
from one, two or three days selling. It could not. It is a
sale that concerns an immense group and these few days
shopping have little more than shown a trace:
There is still style upon styles in all the wanted fabrics,
shades and colors.
We want every woman in all
Birmingham to come and see
these wonderful coat values
\^—Deposit-holdS-the^oat you want I
Don’t expect to find these splendid values later
m the season at these prices. It will be impossible
