To carry out successfully the idea of a modern up-to-date department store, it becomes necessary to tear out
and remodel our entire stores. Our builders have notified us that we must remove our stock before they can ~do
a stroke. We, too, realize the enormous loss that would be sustained both by depreciation caused by flying brick
and mortar, and loss of time to the builders. Hence, we are going to take our loss now and at the same time give
our customers the benefit.
Oui Stoics will be closed on Triday, the 17th, in order to mark down our stock.
