.Of Interest to Clothing Buyers
F. W. Cowden of the Cowdon-Knley Clothing Company has just returned
from Chicngo, whole lie attended the Seventh Scmi-Annual Buying Conven
tion of the United National Clothiers. Mr. Cowden states that nnothcr link
in tho strong chain of co-operation was firmly welded by the United National
Clothiers nt tho Convention of that association held last ucck, when several
hundred of its members met to dincuss tho various mcichnndifling problems
and buy their goods for spring 1918.
Our government, through tho Economy Boaul, is uiging tho conservation
of nil useless waste. Tho members of the United National Clothiers nt their
convention pledged their efforts to coopcrato in every way in conserving tho
products which enter into tho making of apparel, in order to help keep tho
supply above the demand. As prices of merchandise depend upon Bupply
and doninnd, it is plain to see that by conserving tho supply, prices will bo
held to tho lowest level.
""""The. United National Clothiers is a co-operative buying association with
a membership of more thnn two hundred morchnnts in tho 14 mid-west states.
Tho members "pool" their purchases, buy direct from tho manufacturer, elim
inating all useless waste and expense from manufacturer to retailer. This
saves the consumer the middlemen's profits.
Through this collective method of buying tho members of tho United Na
tional Clothiers secure their merchandise at prices as low as tho largest oper
ators in the country, making it possible for them to undersell tho mail-order
houses, tho big department stores and the chain stores, because of tho lower
overhead in conducting a local store.
Mr. Cowden was very enthusiastic in his praise of tho United National
Clothiers and the standardized quality merchandise ho purchnscd through
his association. It is his pmposo to distribute this merchandise to tho buying
public of this community at tho lowest possible prices.
The efficiency of the United National Clothiers' system of convention
buying is secured by eliminating every poBsiblo expenso and waste. This,
gives each member's store tho advantages of collective buying, making it
possible for tho merchant to own Ids merchandise at tho samo low prices
as' the largest buyers.
Tho individual member has tho benefits of tho combined judgment of
more than two hundred successful merchants who arc members of tho asso-
ciation In tho buying of his merchandise. Tho members of Mr. Cowdcn's
association nro able to give customers of their stores tho very same morchan
diso benefits as the big department store's, chnin stores and mail-ordor houses
give their patrons, with the added advantages of individual management.
This means better Btoro sen-ice, closer attention to the individual needs and
interests of tho customer, and lower operating costs, which keep prices
By patronizing the homo store you arc helping to build up your com
munity. When you buy from the mail-order house, you drain from your com
munity that which is needed to make it better.
