Special Announcement of the Annual
January Sale of Linens, White Goods
Muslins and Sheetings Beginning Tuesday, Jan. 2d.
We make this special announcement because
this is an event of special importance.
Our January Sale of Linens and White Goods is totally un
like any other sale held in Omaha during the course of any year
because it is the result of the concerted effort of the most pow
erful buying organization that operates for the benefit of the .peo
ple of Omaha.
Our buyers in Omaha, bur effectively organized New York
oflke and our resident foreign buyers have combined forces in pre
paring for this sale. From time to time during the -past year
factory accumulations and sample lines have been bought at re
ductions totally impossible during regular buying seasons.
Immense consignments of white goods and linens bought
abroad at great sacrifices have been shipped direct in bond and
opened in Omaha by the cus'toms ofiiccrs, saving all the expense
and profit of the middleman.
Linens and white goods of the finest character can be bought
next week for lower prices than they were ever before sold in
Omaha at any sale.
The Sale' begins Tuesday.
