The merchandising firm that buys on 4* a rising market, and buys far in advance, can sell according to Its 4* cost an^make satisfactory profits and yet sell as low as other firms 4* 0 can buy at if they buy for immediate delivery and sale. And that 4* is not all. A firm may buy far in advance of their needs, but not 4* get what purchasing agents consider a good buy. If & firm makes 4* ' bad buys on a rising market and then sells them according to cbst, 4* the customers may have to pay too much. For instance, if we oper- 4* ated a hundred stores and had 'been In the habit of buying by the 4* trainload before the war, and now had to go out and pick up all the 4* odd lots we could find to keep our stores supplied because the gov- 4* ernment had commandeered all these big supplies, we might have 4* to pay outrageous prices to keep some stores supplied at all. We don't have those troubles. We are sticking pretty close to 4* our old established sources of supply .buying far in advance and 4* getting good buys. Now we have the advantages of good buys, 4* rising markets and much of the goods delivered before the rise in 4* freight rates. Now you know why we are happy these days, selling 4* merchandise at fair profits and yet giving our customers prices so 4* satisfactory that they are as pleased as we are. If we took all the 4* profits we could, the government would have «s pay it over as in- 4* come tax, so we might just-As well give our customers these ad- 4* vantages and let thfe customers invest it in thrift stamps and lib- 4* erty bonds for Uncle Sam to use.
