EACH store has a personality of
its own as pronounced as that
"Good on promises but poor
on carrying them out" you
say of one, "Full of tricks
worth watching" is the com
ment about another, "Con
servative but pretty high
priced" is the estimate of a
third. "A fair store and a
careful one" that's what we
want you to say about us in
years to come.
Fairness in its broadest sense
may be expected here. Fairness
which makes your satisfaction
assured on every purchase. Fair
ness which stands for low prices
on worthy goods. We're careful
to see that promises are carried
out to the letter. Careful to see
that only dependable goods enter
our stock. We stand for fairness
and carefulness, by the practice of such principles we expect,
to win the confidence of Cass county people. Our spring;
stock is full and fresh. Come in and buy as little or as much
as you like, or just look. We'll be glad to welcome you.
