Our Christmas Readiness
Meets the Requirements
of Every Purchaser
Everyone from the "tiniest" one to staid,
dignified grandfather, must be remembered
with something . appropriate and .practical
on Christmas morning, but that doesn't
mean a great expenditure of money neces
sarily. The shopper who brings her list to tills
store feels instinctively that here she can
find worthy Christmas gifts-i-gifts that will
be truly appreaciated and yet, which will
not be too great a strain on her purse.
Thrift and deep insight are evident in
every interesting display, whether the ar
ticle is a suitable gift for those at home or
some one in service.
It is always wise in making a selection of
gifts for the younger folk, and even for
those more mature in years, to choose some
pretty article of wearing apparel. A filmy
waist or dress for the family's debutante;
a cravat or silk shirt for father or big
Every Section is distinctly your Section.
You, who are familiar with our high stand
ards of doing business, will not be disap
pointed with our qualities or our service,
both of which we have maintained through
these difficult times. If there is any service
that we may render, you have but to men
tion it when you visit the store.
