THE SUNDAY BEE: OMAHA, AUGUST , 1122.
The Burgess-Nash Store Will Startle Omaha With Its
Department Managers' August Selling Event
B" B. PETERSEN.
IK the department store management, executive control is, of course, ncccs
sary. Sometimes our department heads feel that limitations placed upon'
them by the management are rather severe, and that better results for both
the store and the buying public could be obtained if they were given a freer
hand in the conduct of selling events. v
Desirous of making progress in economical merchandising, and willing to
experiment to that end, the executives will turn the Burgess-Nash store over to
the management of its department heads for two weeks beginning tomorrow.
During this period no general executive of the store will have anything to do
with the selling end of the business.
The success of these two weeks from the standpoint of both the store
management and the buying public, is squarely up to as efficient a staff of
department headfe as can be found in any store in the country.
We ask you, the people of our trade territory, to join with us in putting
these department managers to the test. We confidently believe that they will
succeed. THE BURGESS-NASH COMPANY,

Why You Will Profit by
Our complete stock of beautiful blankets is
marked considerably lower than blankets bought
at today's market prices. Our blanket prices will
be much higher before September first. .
And if we may quote John Bannon, manager
and buyer: "The savings will be considerable,
for I placed my orders months ago before raw
cotton and wool had advanced to today's
prices. Many blankets in this sale are priced
only slightly over today's mill cost. From these
lowest prices, based on my purchase cost, I offer
further reduction during this great August sale."
, This is the eighth blanket sale in as many years
an event of importance not alone to our indi
vidual patrons awaiting this opportunity to re
plenish blanket needs at lower costs, but to hotel
men and others who buy in large quantities.
