Testing eyes is a distinctly professional
work. True, it must be done before
properly fitted glasses can be secured.
But at Clinton's the professional side
is above the mercantile side.
Our optometrist docs not think of
selling a pair of glasses, but of
learning exact eye conditions. If
these do not make glosses advisable,
ho says so. And you can rely on his
advice. Let him examine your eyes.

From Credit to Cash
On and After Oct. 1
WE WILL SELL
For Cash Only
In business there are Three Important and Essential Factors, the Pro
ducer, the Seller and the Consumer. The most important of these
three is the Consumer the one who uses the goods. As sellers of
highest grade Footwear our interests are very closely associated with
the interests of the Consumer YOU! Hence it follows that anything
which benefits to consumer will benefit both of us.
On and after October 1st our business will be operated on a cash basis. Per
sonal charge accounts will be discontinued. This change of store policy is made in
your interest as well as our own. You will be given the benefit of our decreased
"overhead" by correspondingly LOWER PRICES. And at this time when general
costs have been greatly increased due to conditions beyond your and our control,
it's bound to be mighty interesting for you to know that at the BIG SHOE STORE
like ours has adopted a policy which will make it possible to place before you the
ultimate in expert shoe merchandising.
No one need feel any sense of injury at being asked to pay cash. Our first class
credit customers are many in number AND NINETY-FIVE PER CENT of our pat
rons who have and are now carrying "charge accounts" will welcome the new pol
icy because they realize that CASH BUYS" CHEAPER THAN CREDIT. It isn't a
question of getting our money that concerns us most, it's merely a matter of getting
lined up with the NEW WAY OF DOING THINGS the way that gets cash pays
cash and gives better values for less money. We do not make this move in a spirit
of retaliation toward anyone. With us it is strictly a business proposition and we
are putting it up to you SQUARELY. We want your business and expect to get at
least a share of it on the basis of QUALITY, SERVICE and PRICE and last but
not least COURTESY. One price and that one CASH after October 1st; on this
platform of sound business practice we respectfully solicit a continuance of your
