The season for Fall and Winter Suits, Coats, Skirts, etc., is now here and our Big Store is filled with
new stuff of the latest patterns and fabrics from the best manufacturers in the East. Now is the time
to select your garments before they are picked over. We anticipated an advance in prices on all
lines of merchandise, and placed our orders early and with manufacturers that we could depend up
on for deliveries. In this we were fortunate for today our Ready to Wear Department is full of
New Suits, Coats, etc.. and shipments arriving daily. You will not get the best it you don't see our
stock before buying your fall stuff.
