Prices Reasor Me.
It costs so much to operate a store
of a certain size and up to a certain
standard. That cost must be cov
ered by the gross profit on the arti
If a great many articles are sold, the
gross profit that must be added to
the price of each is very small; the
fewer the articles sold the more of
the expense each article must. bear.
This store sells a great many arti
cles; each one has a very small part
of the operating cost saddled on it.
The values are correspondingly big.
But we're not satisfied yet; we want to give
you still bigger values. The only way we can
do it is to sell more soods. We are Groins to
sell more goods, but we're not going to wait
about giving you bigger values until we do it.
We're assuming right now that the goods
are the same as sold, and are offering values
that will convince you.
