Since we purchased this store fourteen months ago we have held two
big sales. The first one was held at the time we bought the store in order
that we might dispose of the stock taken over and replace same with goods
of our own selection. The second was held in January of this year. At
that time we were overstocked as a result of poor business during the coal
shortage period. The object ot the second sale was to reduce stock. In
both of these sales we accomplished our purpose.
Having held two big sales in fourteen months we. were reluctant to
'hold, one at this time even though the cold, backward season this spring
had curtailed our normal business and we were again caught with too much
stock. But we were forced to accept the inevitable and hold this sale re
gardless ofthe lact that sales;,of all kinds are being held today from coast,
to coast. 1
Your response on the opening day is indeed very gratifying to us.
Our store was crowded with buyers from early morning until closing time
at night. Hundreds were compelled to leave without being waited on. We
know you would not patronize us so generously if you did not have full
confidence in our business methods. We appreciate this confidence and
assure you that we will at all times strive to hold the confidence our efforts
