Miodern MIerchandising Have you ever stopped to think about the question of getting your household supplies to the best advantage ? Are you perfectly satisfied with the way things are running - with the prices you pay, the quality of the goods, the range of selection and the general question of making both ends meet? Perhaps you buy your supplies from the cross-roads store just because your grandfather did. Perhaps you are tied up to the general store because you can trade in your butter and eggs at a low price and take it out in trade at a high price. Possibly you have never thought about it one way or the other. Itistime to think. You have got to live and support your family. Your income is limited to so many dollars per year, and you have got to figure out the expense account so that things will come out right at the end of the year. If you can make both ends meet nicely and lay aside a tidy sum for a rainy day, you are only doing what every head of a family should endeavor to do, and if you don't do it you are simply inviting misery for the next time the crop fails. If a dollar looks as big to you as we think it does, we want you to think over this question of modern merchandising and see Just what it means. It means different things to different people. To some it means buying everything on credit, then mortgaging the farm when settlement day comes around. Others think cheap goods the pathway to econ omy - the cheap, worthless trash that is advertised so brazenly at " the lowest price on earth." Many people send off to the city and get a jack knife at a 25 cents sav ing and then fall back into the old rut in buying the balance of their supplies. Our idea af modern merchandising is to supply ALL your wants -everything you eat, wear or use-for yourself, your family, and the hired man, at an average saving of 15 to 40 per cent, which means that If your yearly purchases amount to $200, you can save something like $50; or $100 if It costs you $400 a year to live. Are you so well off that $100, or even $50 does not interest you ? Then again, consider the advan tages: Absolutely reliable morohandise of the very best quality, and an unlimited range of selection. New goods. Prompt service. Prices that spell economy, and the certain knowledge that absolute satisfactlon is the keynote to every transaction.
