ffi We are going to put our Entire Stock on sale
One-Fifth off of our Regular Prices.
jH Market conditions do not justify this except as to Ready-to-Wear S
and Millinery, but the investment in a stock of goods the size we jj
cjjj carry has increased beyond the amount that we feel we should
ifj keep invested, and to make a quick reduction we are offering you
jfj this chance to supply your needs with new up-to-date merchan- jj
jfj dise at less than the wholesale price. Our regular prices are as j
tpj low, and in many instances lower, than replacement values today j
as we have not followed the market but are selling merchandise at fig- jfjj
yj ures at fair profits over purchase prices from contracts made months ago. Epj
We have been holding sales on our Ladies' Coats, Suits and Silk E
E Dresses at reductions of from one-fifth to one-third off. We are going jfj
jjjj to let these sale prices stand on these lines and take one-fifth off of them which will
Sjjj make the cheapest Coats, Suits or Dresses you ever bought.
3 This sale will only continue for a short time and the time for you to get busy is now. 82
