Anyone will willingly pay more for an article of food that they know to be absolutely
pure than they will for a doubtful article. Then, when the poor article can be had
for the same price as the doubtful one, people are bound to take advantage of it.
That's the secret of our grocery department's success. We carry nothing but the
purest of pure food and offer it at the same prices as are usually paid for inferior
grades. Here's an example.
