Pure Food Grocery
That's the name we have called our store for a.Iong
time. We did it because that is our idea of a store
where persons get things to eat.
. Just before the holidays the State Pure Food In-,
spector came along and gave the store his O. K. Now -we
ask you to take his word for the name we chose.
Put this with the service we give remember we
have our own delivery wagons and see if it wouldn't
be wise to buy WHAT YOU EAT from us. Just try
it a month.
