Keep Bright and You
WILL KEEP BUSY
Klectric Light is the magnet that draws trade. The
bright store is the "hypnotic eye" of business. People can
no more resist the attraction of a brilliant, Electrically lighted
store than they can resist the clarion call of a brass hand.
Is your competitor with the Electrically illuminated show
windows, bright interior and sparkling Klectric Sign getting
nu advantage over you ? The moth never flutters around the
uulighled caudlel Up-to-date Mores nowadays consider
shop-window lighting 11 necessity, whether they remain open
after dark or not. Competition forces modern methods.
A show window brilliantly illuminated with Klectric
light will make many a sale "the night before." Klectric
light compels attention, makes easy the examination of your
display, sltows goods in detail and fabrics in their true colors.
And don't neglect the Klectric Sign. It is soliciting
"tomorrow's" business every moment it is lighted burning
your name in the public mind. It Is a solicitor that never
becomes weary never stops work costs little.
