sumcr clothing at prices that we defy any other store in
this city to duplicate, for merchandise of the same grade
and make.
Do Not Compare

credit store, the system of extending credit, as we employ
it, is not the kind that so-called credit stores are using.

here; we use no red tape In giving you credit, we ask
no unnecessary questions, no reference or security, we do
not go to your employer or neighbor for reference—YOUR
PERSONAL PROMISE TO PAY is all we require.

you pay—no matter whether it takes you ten days or six
months to pay your bill contracted with us, the price to all
is just the same, and the same courtesy extended to one
