The era of Chain Stores eiune about because n
group of men with large capital could, by starting
stores in different localities increase the outlet of
merchandise emulating from one source.
The Chain vStore system is nothing more than
auy other store except the buying part is concentrat

' It goes without saying that a buyer who can buy
the same sort of merchandise for several hundred
stores can command a better price than a buyer for
just one store.

where in Portland.
Coupled with this buying capacity, the activity
of the owners, the acquaintance with the locality be
