"The Store That Can Sell
Merchandise as Fast as
It Can Buy It, Is the
Wonder of the Age"
Small profits win a large volume of
business; carrying stock from month to
month and from season to season is
what kills off the business; that's why
we are making these deep, slashing,
recklessly low prices. We can't tell a
half in the newspapers. The unadver
tised bargains you find in the store are
the ones that keep the crowds coming
day after day. Some former department
buyers bought unwise quantities. The
prices you'll find them now marked,
will make you want to buy a lot of this
merchandise and will reduce these over
bought stocks. We can only hint at the
many unadvertised bargains. Come and
see them and you'll buy.
