MILL ENDS AT MILL COST
10,000 yards mill ends 3 J Ac per yard- Mill ends mean goods that fall short of forty or fifty yard lengths, requisite for export purposes. Identical In quality, style
and design with the full piece, still not to be classed with regular goods because they are wanting in lengths—a thread missing in napkins—a slight discoloration in
some fabric—crooked or careless stitching in underwear—a coarse thread in hose. These are “mill ends” characteristics. None of these slight flaws matter to the
customer, but they prevent the miil or factory from selling goods at a profitable price. You will pay twice or thrice the money for the same goods at other stores.
