This week, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, we shall hold another One Cent Sale. The One Cent
Sale was introduced by ourselves in this city something over two years ago. Such sales have been held
in all the principal cities of the United States during the last few months, generally in the Rexall Drug
Stores, and have been the sensation of the hour.
You buy ONE article at the REGULAR price, and then another of the same kind for lc. The One
Cent Sale is an outgrowth of modern merchandising methods. By its means the manufacturer, anxious
for a wider distribution of his products, makes a special concession in price, thus encouraging the re
tailer to co-operate by holding these sales, whereby a large volume of merchandise is quickly distrib
uted to the public, of course, without a cent of profit, but with the effect of quickly introducing some
meritorious article, perhaps hitherto unknown, or increasing largely the distribution of well-known and
standard articles. "
Below we give a few samples and items to show the plan of the sale. This is a chance you cannot
afford to overlook, as there will be all classes of drug store merchandise offered at these remarkable
saving prices.
Remember, vou BUY ONE article, whether it b e 5c, 10c, 25c, 50c or $1.00 or $2.00, and GET
No C. 0. D. or phone orders. No
goods sold to dealers, knowingly.
We reserve the right to limit quantities.
