Modern storekeeping is chiefly different
in the large way it accumulates goods. It
is different in its way of selling, too being
more liberal, more candid and more depend
ent on vour satisfaction for its success. But
the root of the betterment is in the buying
helpful to you; helpful as well to the pro
ducers of goods.
Furniture makers have busy seasons, as
have milliners and tailors. Then come the
hand, they can intelligently withdraw their"
profits and catch the message of the trade
winds. Hence' "August 'Sales'! in retail fur
niture stores the distributing of these man
ufacturers' closed-qut-lots. " :
clear-ups, when selling off the balances on j But every, store is not. a modern store,
and the temptation to share a new kfnd of
mrd-summer 'business tempts, some mer
chants to catch the shadow with small care
for the substance hence August sales every
where, and hence the making up of furniture
' to ; give stocks for such sales. And there is
the risk. Goods simply "made to sell" are
apt to be deficient in quality, strength and
finish. We want none of, such furniture
for we must sell furniture as we sell other
goods to give long satisfaction. What fail
ed, we should be crlled upon to make good.
