Why this store dominates
the clothing field in Omaha
What store is first remembered when clothing is mentioned? Is it this or some of the
older ones? Why is King Swanson Co's name foremost in everybody's mind? Let us answer.
It is the store that dared to upset traditional methods and establish a new era in clothes sell
ing. It was unafraid to stand for better things.
It installed beautiful and comfortable equipment for its patrons. It formulated a store
service that took the town by storm and gathered imitators by the score. It established a
method of buying that results in substantial savings in real money for every person who
trades here. In short it labors incessantly to be a store that serves the people's interests
rather than a store whose interests are served by the people. Its success is the reward that
awaits everyone who discovers a new way to do an old thing.
