Cortes' Dry Goods Cos
Will Continue to May 15th
On account of the unseasonable weather during the time set for our "Challenge
Sale" we have decided to continue the same until May 15 in order to give those who
have been kept away by the cold weather an opportunity to take advantage of this
splendid chance for econmical buyiny. To keep interest in the sale alive, we have
added a lot of new Challenge Bargains. We invite you to call and see them; you
will not be disappointed if you do, but will be disappointed if you delay too long.
READ WHAT All OMAHA PAPER HAD TO SAY ABOUT THIS SALE OF OURS
"Plattsmouth merchants are live ones and are making a splendid fight to prevent the2-cent passenger
rate influencing the people of community doing their buying in the large cities. In the issue of the Evening
Journal of April 3d, the Coates' Dry Goods Co. take two pages of the paper to tell the people of the bargains
that they have for all who care to save money. The advertisement is printed in green, and typographically
equals the advertisements of the great department stores in the larger cities, but the attractive feature is
that prices are quoted that are convincing that the company sells goods of quality lower than the stores of
the big cities. There are dozens of bargains, and the Plattsmouth citizen who would pass up this store and
do his buying in some other town, surely needs to learn a few things in economy. Were merchants in other
Nebraska towns so enterprising, there would be.less complaint as to the trade, given, to. outside stores."
Omaha Trade Exhibit. There is a lot of good advice in the above which Plattsmouth people would be wise
We list below a few of our "Challenge Sale" Bargains. Space will not permit full description, so we
name articles and quote prices. Low drices do not mean poor quality at this store. Always the same goods
for less money, and better goods for the same money.
