Our New Years' Resolution
Start It Right Now
IN making our New Years' Resolution, we have resolved that we will,
after January 1st, 1914, sell Groceries for cash, and sell them for
less. We know that it takes some nerve to do this, and is a move that
many business men will not make until forced to do so by their credi
tors. We are not forced to this move by any of our creditors, but we
think we can serve you better by selling for cash, which will enable us
to pay cash, therefore buying cheaper. We have been in business in
Ontario for almost four years, and if we must say it ourselves we have,
in a measure, been successful ; but at the same time could we collect
the accounts we have contracted around Ontario, we could make each
of you a very substantial Christmas present and have money left. We
realize that in taking this step we will lose some of our customers, but
at the same time we think we will gain some; and the ones that we will
gain are the ones that are really worth while. After wo inaugurate this
system of doing business, if you force us to tell you that you cannot do
business with us as you have in the past, don't get angry when we tell
you that you cannot, as it will only be our policy of doing business. And
if we cannot do business we can still be friends. In taking this step we
think that we are only doing what other business men will do sooner or
later. We will break the ice then they will follow. We know what you
will expect of us. We know what we will have to do. But we do not
think it wise to tell you all the things that we can, and will do after
January 1st. In the mean time we wish to thank you all for past busi
ness, and wish to merit a continuance of same. With kind regards and
greetings of the season.
