WHY WE AR
E GOING TO MAKE ANOTHER REDUCTION AT THIS TIME
At the beginning of every year every successful business establishment will formulate
plans upon which it expects to operate during that year. These plans are worked out after
a careful study of the previous years record and experience. No haphazard method or
guesswork can be used. Only concrete facts and correct figures are considered. If a care
ul accounting of all items of insurance, taxes, depreciation, interest, salaries, advertising,
:ad accounts, sales, etc, for the previous yeai has been recorded, then an accurate budget
or the new year, based on previous experience, may be arrived at. That is just exactly
ow the Hall Lumber Company1 perfected its plans for the current year-1921. We esti
mated our expenses of every nature; we knew that last year it cost us a little less than one
percent of each dollars sales for advertising; we knew positively that our sales were $77,000.
00; we knew also to the cent our cost of doing business, and our net profit. Our excellent
system of accounting made all this possible. While it cost us considerable money to tablu
late all these records, we are now going to show you how they helped us, and how they
are going to save you money. At the expiration of this month-when the year is but three
fourths spent-these records show us that by using the newspapers throughout our territory
to tell our customers what we had to sell and what it was sold for, our sales have exceeded
our every expectation, and have now almost reached the figure we anticipated for the entire
twelve months. In other words, we anticipated sales aggregating $100.000.00 for the entire
year, 1921, and based our selling price above our cost so that by selling that amount we
would secure a fair profit on our investment. Our records show further that while our ad
vertising to date is considerably in excess of last year's total amount for that period, yet
our sales have shown such a decided increase that it is, costing us but THREE
FOURTHS OF ONE PERCENT of our sales. These same records show further
that this company, by its wonderful increase in business has been enabled to operate at a
fiigure below that anticipated at the beginning of the year. That means that we have by
increasing our sales, both made and saved money. So during the balance of this year we
are going to share whatever saving we may make with our customers AND BEGINNING
WITH OCTOBER FIRST A SUBSTANTIAL REDUCTION WILL BE MADE ON MANY ITEMS CAR
RIED BY US AT OUR DIFFERENT YARDS WHICH WUL MATERIALLY AFFECT ANY BILL WE
HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO FIGURE FOR YOU.
Several other( things have come about that have some bearing on this
splendid showing which enable us to make a reduction at this time. The
purchase of the two yards at Winslow in November and December of last
year turned out to be a far better investment than we ever hoped for. The
addition to our business of a wholesale department, which was inaugurated
some sixty days ago, is another splendid asset, for now we are enabled to
purchase many items, such as cement, patent piaster, doors, roofing, etc.,
in large quantities, and thus make a big saving for our retail; department.
Wm have also added many new lines to our business, such as plumbing
supplies, corrugated iron, etc., that have greatly assisted in increasing our
sales without increasing our sales force.
In our efforts to conduct our business in a careful, conservative man
ner, and realizing the hazzard connected with the contracting business, we
have steadily refused to enter into that branch of the building line, and 1
have therefore suffered no loss from that source; and at the same time re
tained the good will of the carpenters and contractors who are regular cus
tomers at our different yards. We also, expect a good business from our
coal department, as we have recently completed at Holbrook a spacious
coal bin. with new scales, and this bin will always contain a sufficient a
mount of good clean Diamond lump coal to take care of our Holbrook cue
' tomers. ,
The successful operation of the two yards purchased at Winslow Jt
year, and the splendid results obtained were sufficiently encouraging as to
cause us to purchase outright a fourth yard during the past ten days, and
now this cempany, that started in business a little over two years ago with
one small shed, now owns and operates four lumber yards, and is piacning
for further expansion within the next thirty days. We have more to say
about this contemplated expansion next week. Watch for it.
