Aor Enough Attention Given
tr Merit of Merchandise
There i too much laxity in buy
ing ni'-'hods. Still people complain
ol hig'n prices when, in reality,
cnrrles? spending is instrumental in
keeping up costs Not enough at
tentior is given to the actual value
of merchandise
For example, a housewife goes in
to a grocery store. She orders a can
ot tins a pound of that a peck or
a package of something else. She
looks upon high prices as a condi
tion over which she has little or no
VII too oftn she entertains the
pe-vcrted notion that a price-tag is a
badge ot quality that high priced
goods are naturally the most mer
itorious She has lost the true per
spective 6f worth in the jumble of
hie'" costs and judges bv what shr
gives more than by what she gets.
It :s a grievous error and a pre
dominating cause of high prices 1 V
ery buyer of foodstuffs a d all other
kinds of merchandise should consid
er QUALITY first. If an article
thn' -rtails at a moderate price will
answer your purpose as well or bet
ter than one that sells at exorbitant
hgures, favor the lower priced item
by all means
.Should Be Buying Guide
for Every Housewife
This doc.-n't imply that all goods
sold at a moderate price possess de
sirable merit Poor merchandise at
any puce always proves expensive.
Quality alone is the only test of
value and should be the bu ing
guide of every housewife.
High-priced commodities that are
not worth the prices at which they
are quoted arc sold because there is
a aemand for them The grocer must
'..andlc them because Ins trade insists
on having them. The grocer is not
to blame. He hesitates to offer buy
ing suggestions to customers be
cauac so many persons view such ad
Ticc as an outright insult to their
buying intelligence
The conscientious grocer and the
lugt majority of grocers are of that
6'npc is eager to save money for
his customers willing and able to
give them intelligent and helpful ad
vice along the lines of economical
buying But the customer must dis
piay I willingness to be adviscJ.
There should be a clearer under
standing between the retailer and the
consumer a liner spirit of co-opcra-tioii
The grocer is dependent upon
the consumer His interests lie par
allel with those of hi trade. He
carries food products of greatest ex
cellence produced by manufacturers
who permit retail sales to be made
it legitimate figures.
I am fully convinced that the buy
ing public should encourage the gro
c r r to push quality merchandise that
sells at an economical price This
will have a tendency to whip up
production of goods of sound merit
ai.d fair prices at the same time
discouraging the manufacture, sale
and use of products that represent
extravagance and v.a9tc.
There should be no mistake about
this matter of economy. The house
wife who boils "potatoes with jack
ets" to prevent waste of peelings
who savrs her left-over coffee can,
I am sure, defeat h-r splendid inten
tions many times over by unwise buy
ing Proper selection of foods is
the first step towards reduction of
lood prices.
I am poartrre that the important
things ior the housewife to remem
ber, practice and preach are, "don't
buy food products that can be du
plicated at a saving of cash and a
gain in quality; investigate the food
value of an article; don't accept high
prices as final proof of high quality,
do not accuse the dealer of holding
up prices when you deliberately per
sist in buying goods for which he
must - pay high prices Florence
