Thinks Retailer Is Key

Readjustments of Recent Months Have Placed Him In

Baboon Park, Fla., March 26. — As
optimism and self-confidence were
over-developed during the period of
prosperity, so pessimism and fear
have likewise been over-developed
during the depression. This means
that every one is carrying curtailment
too far, and an actual shortage of
goods is being developed. For the past
eight ecn months more goods have
been consumed than have been made.
Merchandise in the hands of pro
ducers, wholesalers, and retaltere Is
lowest in many years. Stocks op hand
in the stores are 20 per cent below
.a year ago and 27 per cent below nor
mal. In recent months manufacturers'
bankrupt stocks have been purchased
by retailers and gold at auction prices
to consumers, ITtese distress stocks
are now pretty well cleaned up. More
over, many consumers have put off
buying so long that almost everything
they have is nearly worn out.
This obsolescence applies to motor
cars, tries,, clothing, footwear, fur
niture. houcshold equipment, houses,
and practically ail the necessities of
life. People must soon buy to replace
and a little buying would result in a
decided stimulation to business and
employment. More employment, in
turn, will mean more buying and
genera] business recovery will be
started. The various unemployment
relief measures effected are only stop
gaps. useful and necessary, but tem
porary. The only way to permanently
, help the unemployment situation is
by- stimulating consumer buying.
Every dollar that goes into retail
stores multiplies itself many times In
its effect on business as it works back
through the wholesaler, jobber, manu
facturer, and producer of raw ma
terials. The retail merchant, there
fore. is the key to the nation's pros
pects for return of prosperity.
Retailer Is Helping.
In the early part o fthe depression
the retailer, like most other people,
thought It was only temporary and
avoided changing his prices or meth
ods of doing business. Gradually, bow
er, as the depression re
tailers have been getting down to
hardpan and have greatly increased
► heir economy and efficiency. Nearly
every store in the country has trim
med down expenses, eliminated
“frills” and got its business onto a
really efficient basis. Certain cost

items have been slow to change, such
as rents and taxes. Retail savings are
being passed along to consumers in
lower prices. Also a new spirit of ser
vice to the public is emphasized. Even
though there are about 1,500,000 retail
stores in the United States, there is
always room for the store that sup
plies people with the kind of goods
they want at the lowest costs consis
tent with good quality, style, service,
and timeliness.
Although most retailers, with (he
exception of some of the large chain
systems, operated at a loss in 1931,
and although dollar sales have so far
this year been running about twenty
per cent under a year the read
justments carried out in recent
months have cleared the way for fun
damental improvement. Customers are
how offered quality merchandise at
low prices, fitting their lower pur
chasing power. But the days of the
less-than-cost bargains are rapidly
drawing to a close. To those people

to be had right now. Regardless „r
what happens Abroad we can have
good share of prosperity right In ihi*
country if we will only work hard
enough to get it. That means that w*
haae to keep our sales programs live

•hat it is foolhardly to cripple y „ ur
sales efforts by unwise cutting at ihh
time. Instead of cutting out adverts
Using, seek to improve its appeal It
is the business of the sales and ad
vertising department to get custom
ers into the store.
To the independent retailer I say
stop worrying abkut chain store com
petition. and stick to your own field
which is specialized quality merchan
dizing. Do not stray Into the olher
fellow's territory which is moss dis
tribution of low-priced merchandise.
Above all. time your advertising to
suit the changes in mode and fashion
The independent store is far better
able than the chain system to adapt
itself quickly to changing demand.-,,
its buying policy is more flexible, li
is better able to meet local require
ments because it can keep its ear
close to the ground in the community.
Can Render Great Service.
Both Independents and chains must
remember that the consumer is still
king. He will be served, and those re.
tailers who serve him most fairly and
at the lowest cost for honest good*
are the ones who will change red ink
to black on their books in 1932. By
so doing they will also speed the re
turn of general prosperity. Consum
ers, in the same way, can render »
great service by making needed pur
chases now, thus helping not only
themselves but the unemployed, and
the whole welfare of the country.
General business as measured by the
Babsonchart is now 34 per cent below
the normal X-Y Line, compared with
34 per cent a month ago, even with
