Of Our Entire Stock
and' Continuing For Fifteen Days
We take pleasure in announcing to the good people of Berea and community that we will soon be ready to
move into our new home which Berea College has been erecting for us. It will be only a few weeks until we are
ready to take possession of this new building and we will be better prepared to serve the people than we were in
our old quarters.
Our lease on the present building has expired and we must get rid of our present stock regardless of cost. We
do not intend to carry any of our present stock into our new quarters, since we have bought an unusually large ship
ment of house furnishings for the new store room, and, when we start again we will have a store that Berea will
feel justly proud of.
We kindly ask that you read the following prices which we quote on our present stock. Many of the items can
not be replaced at the price we are offering them. We are unable to give prices on everything, so we cordially in
vite you to come to our store and see for yourself the wonderful values we are giving.
