WE WANT YOUR PATRONAGE
So do others. Simply feeling that way and expressing the wish
will not win it. All jewelers, in their own way. are trying for the
same object. Our ambition is a very universal one. It is shared
by a multitude. However, with us. it is active, absorbing, domi
nant. We realize it by daring to do what ethers have never done.
HOW CAN WE MAKE OUR BUSINESS
CONSPICUOUS DISTINCTIVE. SPECIAL?
That's the ever present thought. Our hope hinges in our su
perior facilities. The personal attention given to customers and
to details of the business--to the matchless variety, quality and
price. These things are the distinguishing marks, the final cri
terion, the controlling tests of merit. We gather the best, the
most striking designs which the market affords, and are satis
fied with the smallest of fair profits.
IT MEANS ECONOMY FOR YOU IF YOU BUY
A WATCH OR A PIECE OF JEWELRY HERE
SUCCESS AND GROWTH FOR US.
Broadly stated--every chance that favors us is turned to your
account. Today marks the beginning of a new era for this store
— a greater store old friends and old faces in new dress —
Every week we ll tell you something new. You'll read and per
force will come.
