I Open FSy "Somewhat Different" Men?s Clothes
and Furnishing Goods Shop, Saturday, March 2
I thought about it long and seriously, then came to the conclusion that Omaha
was large enough and cosmopolitan enough to afford something "tonier" .than it
has in the way of a man's clothes and haberdashery shop. Now I've done my ut
most to supply what was needed. (Be present on opening day.)
But note' this, my prices will be POPULAE; quite low; despite the fact that
the clothes,' hats, furnishings, etc., offered are of the most SUPERB grade procur-!
able. All of this CAN be done. I am GOING to DO it. I want you to SEE the
commencement of the "Brooks' " idea on Saturday, March second.
