Market Prices Named by
We are glad to tell the public the market news these days because it is good news. Prices
have declined for most of the staple articles, and in naming prices at our store we have the .
satisfaction of naming market prices based on buying standard new goods in the open mar
ket where everybody could buy and replenish their stocks if they moved quick enough. As
we have said before, our stock was low, we bought our new stock during the first few days
after this season's prices were made, we shipped promptly, and we now have the fresh new
goods on sale.
These are not special sales nor bargain sales for one week only, nor for any period, but to
come in and buy as much or as little as you want at any time because the lid is off and prices
are established on this new level. * ' .
The following quotations will give some idea of the market now, and the Seeger-Bundlie
company are the first ones to announce these prices in Blackfoot.

We can't enumerate all the kinds of goods and the prices, but these give you an idea of the
market as it-is now, and as it must remain for some time until conditions change in the pro
duction and delivery of raw materials at the factories. Note that we are the first ones to
give actual market prices here, and if others announce special sales, we invite comparisons
with our regular market prices for similar goods that are fresh from the mills.
