C. 0. Weingand
Slashes Prices
For ten days past C. 0. Wein
gand, the clothier, has been sell
ing Suits and Overcoats at a
discount of thirty-three and one
third per cent, and giving a very
liberal discount on other classes
of merchandise, and the result
lias been very gratifying to Mr.
Weingand and very satisfactory
to the purchasing public. There
has been an absolute reduction
of one-third on the selling price
of suits and overcoats there was
no marking up of prices and then
a reduction. A $15 suit or over
coat is offered for 310 and the
same proportionate cut is made
on all suits and overcoats, except
blue serge suits, on which the
reduction is twenty-five per cent.
By oftering these liberal dis
counts, Mr. Weingand is enjoying
a big trade and it looks' as though
the end he desires to attain that
of closing out allsuits and over
coatswill be reached.
Like many other clothiers, Mr.
Weingand purchased more suits
and overcoats la'st fall than the
trade demanded the early part ot
the season, this being largely
due to the oipen winter "ve have
so far had, ahcl rather than carry
them over for another season he
is disposing of them at a discount
of thirty-three and one-third per
This is certainly a money
saving opportunity for those who
need suits, overcoats, shoes, un
derwear and other articles of
apparel. Having been in business
so short a time, Mr. Weingand
has no old stuff on hand, every
thing is fresh, the best of fabrics
and the latest models. When you
buy at Weingand's you get quality
goods the cream of the manu
facturers' productions. Adv
