WE HAVE ARRANGED FOR MORE HELP
Last Saturday we were unable to wait on all of
our trade. We regret this very much. We had some
extra help but did not know just what to expect. We
have arranged for more help for Saturday and hope
to be able to serve you better.
We appreciate the patience shown us by a num
ber of our good customers. Some waited on them
selves while others waited and came back to have the
clerks show them.
We are trying to run this Red-Hog Store on the
least expense possible yet we do not want our custo
mers to feel they can't get service.
Be as patient as you can with us during the rush
hours and we will assure you it will be appreciated.
